The Unanswered Ives – Pioneer In American Music
Charles Ives © Accentus Music
Charles Ives is the most famous “weekend composer” of musical history and is regarded today as the first composer of the modern age in America. The Unanswered Ives is the first film about Charles Ives and a profound exploration of an extraordinary, multi-faceted personality. It sheds a light on Ives' life and work in all their facets and explores his musical world with performances in churches, concert halls, out in open air or in a circus. Insurance brokers, musicologists, musicians and eyewitnesses give their own answers to the question which has hardly yet been answered today: Who was Charles Ives?
