Ives Studies is a collection of essays on the life and music of American composer Charles Ives (1874–1954). In it, scholars address significant issues in Ives scholarship, including the hotly debated chronology of his work, the nature of his compositional philosophy and style, and his place in music history. The essays take their place in an Ives literature that understands and demythologizes a most complex man, and that has brought enlightenments to a stunningly original body of music.

  • A convincing response to allegations that Ives was not the innovator he claimed to be
  • The essays contribute to an ongoing process of historical revision in Ives scholarship
  • The contributors are leading figures in the area of Ives research
