The Music & Artwork

The Music: Ives’ Three Places in New England
In this orchestral set, Connecticut-born composer Charles Ives set out to evoke through music the atmosphere and history of three locations in New England.


The Artwork: Works by Marsden Hartley and others
Ives’ contemporary, Maine-born painter Hartley, was himself deeply attached to music. He returned to Maine in his final years and applied his modernist aesthetic to its landscapes.
