Quotes of Charles Ives

Американский композитор-новатор

  • ⋅A rare experience of a moment at daybreak, when something in nature seems to reveal all consciousness, cannot be explained at noon. Yet it is part of the day's unity. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅But maybe music was not intended to satisfy the curious definiteness of man. Maybe it is better to hope that music may always be transcendental language in the most extravagant sense. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Every great inspiration is but an experiment. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Expression, to a great extent, is a matter of terms, and terms are anyone's. The meaning of 'God' may have a billion interpretations if there be that many souls in the world. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅If a composer has a nice wife and some nice children, how can he let the children starve on his dissonances? /Charles Ives
  • ⋅If a poet knows more about a horse than he does about heaven, he might better stick to the horse, and some day the horse may carry him into heaven. /Charles Ives

  • ⋅It is conceivable that what is unified form to the author or composer may of necessity be formless to his audience. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅One thing I am certain of is that, if I have done anything good in music, it was, first, because of my father, and second, because of my wife. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅The fabric of existence weaves itself whole. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅There can be nothing exclusive about substantial art. It comes directly out of the heart of the experience of life and thinking about life and living life. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Vagueness is at times an indication of nearness to a perfect truth. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅You cannot set art off in a corner and hope for it to have vitality, reality, and substance. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Every great inspiration is but an experiment. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Expression, to a great extent, is a matter of terms, and terms are anyone's. The meaning of 'God' may have a billion interpretations if there be that many souls in the world /Charles Ives
  • ⋅The word 'beauty' is as easy to use as the word 'degenerate.' Both come in handy when one does or does not agree with you /Charles Ives
  • ⋅An apparent confusion, if lived with long enough, may become orderly . . . A rare experience of a moment at daybreak, when something in nature seems to reveal all consciousness, cannot be explained at noon. Yet it is part of the day's unity /Charles Ives
  • ⋅In some century to come, when the school children will whistle popular tunes in quarter-tones--when the diatonic scale will be as obsolete as the pentatonic is now--perhaps then these borderland experiences may be both easily expressed and readily recognized. But maybe music was not intended to satisfy the curious definiteness of man. Maybe it is better to hope that music may always be transcendental language in the most extravagant sense /Charles Ives
  • ⋅The possibilities of percussion sounds, I believe, have never been fully realized /Charles Ives
  • ⋅One thing I am certain of is that, if I have done anything good in music, it was, first, because of my father, and second, because of my wife /Charles Ives
  • ⋅If idioms are more to be born than to be selected, then the things of life and human nature that a man has grown up with--(not that one man's experience is better than another's, but that it is 'his.')--may give him something better in his substance and manner than an over-long period of superimposed idiomatic education which quite likely doesn't fit his constitution. My father used to say, 'If a poet knows more about a horse than he does about heaven, he might better stick to the horse, and some day the horse may carr /Charles Ives
  • ⋅Beauty in music is too often confused with something that lets the ears lie back in an easy chair. Many sounds that we are used to do not bother us, and for that reason we are inclined to call them beautiful. Frequently, when a new or unfamiliar work is accepted as beautiful on its first hearing, its fundamental quality is one that tends to put the mind to sleep. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅I don't write music for sissy ears. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅My God! What has sound got to do with music? /Charles Ives

  • ⋅Please don't try to make things nice! All the wrong notes are right. Just copy as I have -- I want it that way. /Charles Ives
  • ⋅All melodious poets shall be hoarse as street ballads, when once the penetrating keynote of nature and spirit is sounded-the earth-beat, sea-beat, heart-beat, which make the tune to which the sun rolls, and the globule of blood and the sap of the trees. /Charles Ives
