I think I have a biography that Cowell wrote about Ives, which might be worth listing in the books section. http://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/biblio?inkey=7-111731622x-1


Henry Cowell was gay/bisexual, which of course wasn't unique in the pre-WWII group of of American composers (Copland, Blitzstein, Cage, Rorem, Barber etc.) and after he was arrested in 1936 for having sex with a 17-year old guy, Ives completely cut off Cowell. Sad.

I've heard a couple of his symphonies and they're pretty anonymous, I wonder if I just heard the wrong ones.

So I let the oasys do it.
