FOUR ECCENTRIC SONGS OF CHARLES IVES
by Charles Ives
/ Steven Paxton
The Cage, Walking, The Side Show, and Thoreau were selected from Charles Ives‘ self-published 114 SONGS, first distributed / published by Ives in 1922. These short songs, transcribed here for concert band, abound in colorful harmonies and playful rhythms, all in the sometimes daring and always distinctive musical language of this great American composer. These transcriptions offer a way to introduce young musicians to the remarkable music of one of America’s greatest composers, Charles Ives. And they can also generate discussions about eccentricity, tolerance, thinking outside-the-box, and artistic iconoclasm.
