Ives, Charles

(20 October 1874, Danbury, Connecticut – 19 May 1954, New York)
   Early experimenter in modernist composition. Ives’ nine psalm settings (between 1893–1897, Psalm 90 reworked in 1924) explored polytonality, whole tone harmony, and close dissonance. Much of his secular concert music quotes and refers to traditional American hymn tunes. (at)
