David Kaplowitz's Odd Time Page

I was really psyched about the article when I found it. At that time there were only 2 Zappa references in the whole article, which is sad in a discussion of odd times. So I started contributing as much as I could. Then it started turning into a silly "bigger is better" contest with some dunce (or a couple of dunces) adding up as many measures as they could count into one jumbo time signature. Yeah! While discussing this in the notes in that article, I was informed by another member of the wiki that Wikipedia's supposed to be about references to "established" or published authorities on the subject.

Without a doubt, the child was gifted and his father Johann envisioned creating a new Mozart, a child prodigy. On March 26th 1778, at the age of 7 ½, Ludwig Van Beethoven gave his first public performance at Cologne. His father announced that he was 6 years-old. Because of this Beethoven always thought that he was younger than he actually was. In 1782, before the age of 12, Beethoven published his first work, 9 Variations in C Minor for piano on a march by Earnst Christoph Dressler (WoO 63). In June 1784, on Neefe’s recommendations Ludwig Van Beethoven was appointed organist of the court of Maximillian Franz, the Elector of Cologne.

Sunday afternoon, the American Academy of Arts and Letters presented a concert in tribute to Charles Ives that also served as a grand announcement of their recent acquisition: Ives’s complete studio from his home in West Redding, Connecticut. The entire room has been transported and reassembled in the galleries, with The Unanswered Question on the music stand and pencil shavings on his desk. For a composer whose entire career was tied to memories of the past, the studio is itself an inchoate sketch of the music. As Vivian Perlis wrote in her insightful program note, “It can be said that Ives’s journeys to the past resemble nothing less than the re-living of times through sonic memories—inconstant, fragmented, difficult, aggressive, joyful and nostalgic.”

The Violin Sonata No. 2 is a bridge between those two worlds. Like Mahler, Ives’ bedrock as a composer are his songs. Charles Ives’ studio. Best Selling albums from Naxos.Com.
