Ives based his “Emerson” movement on an earlier “Emerson Concerto” he never finished, and on four occasions between 1933 and 1943 he went into a recording studio and played much of the original Emerson material. These recordings, along with several published piano studies, help us reassemble a not-entirely-convincing idea of the “Emerson Concerto,” and along the way give us some insight into Ives as improviser.

Keywords:   Ralph Waldo Emerson, Ives’s Emerson Concerto, Ives’s Piano Studies, transcription, improvisation
