Charles Ives's Concord

University of Illinois Press

Ives’s First Piano Sonata (1901-1917, written concurrently with the Concord) is analyzed here to show differences between its formal design and the Concord’s. Particularly evident is its greater reliance on ragtime and quoted hymn tunes, including its jazzy rendition of “Bringing in the Sheaves.”

Keywords:   “Bringing in the Sheaves”, “O Happy Day”, Lebanon, “I Was a Wand’ring Sheep”, “Welcome Voice”, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”, ragtime
