12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first decades of the twentieth century were a fertile and fascinating period in American musical history. This book and the two CDs that accompany it present an exceptional collection of interviews with and about the most significant musical figures of the era. Tapping the unparalleled materials contained in the Oral History American Music archive at Yale University, Composers' Voices from Ives to Ellington is a unique account of what it was like for musicians and composers to live and work in those years. It is also the story of the making of this archive, as told by Vivian Perlis, who personally conducted many of the interviews."--Jacket

Charles Ives remembered : an oral history by Vivian Perlis( Book )
27 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Charles Ives was an extraordinary personality as well as a brilliant composer and insurance genius. The publication of this unique work, based on Ives's manuscripts and papers from the Charles Ives Collection in the Yale Music Library and on extensive interviews with people from all aspects of his multifaceted life, coincides with the centenary of Ives's birth. Integrating all this material into a highly readable narrative, Vivian Perlis has woven a vivid portrait of a fascinating man. An unconventional man, Ives did not choose ordinary friends and associates, as illustrated by the people interviewed for this book. They range from elderly Danbury residents, who remember Ives as a boy, to insurance executives, who describe his innovations in the life insurance business. Members of the Ives family reminisce about "Uncle Charlie's" vigorous and athletic youth, and his classmates from Yale ('98) recall the early musical accomplishments of his college years. A complete picture of Ives the composer is provided by numerous composers and performers who worked with Ives during his lifetime. The anecdotes recounted by Ives's friends and neighbors--and even his barber--bring Charles Ives to life for the reader. In addition to fifty-eight edited interviews, each prefaced with an introduction by Mrs. Perlis, the book includes over eighty illustrations, many of them reproduced here for the first time--unique photographs of Ives and his family and associates, original music manuscripts, rare programs of per-formances of Ives's works, and handwritten letters both to and from Ives. These combine to form an in-depth picture of one of the most original and creative minds of the twentieth century [Publisher description]
