(p.27) 2 The Programmatic Argument and Henry Sturt
Charles Ives's Concord

Kyle Gann

University of Illinois Press

At the time Ives began the Concord, program music (music that implicitly referred to or musical described historical or literary narratives) was still somewhat controversial. The prologue of Essays Before a Sonata takes up the topic of program music and reveals Ives’s erudite understanding of its previous history. It also reveals his indebtedness to a minor English Hegelian philosopher named Henry Sturt, who has never before been covered in the Ives literature.

Keywords:   Program music, Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, Eduard Hanslick, Henry Cecil Sturt, Herbert Spencer, emotion, representation
