“Three Places in New England,” by Charles Ives, is performed for the first time to mild applause at a concert funded by the composer himself. Mild applause, but Ives’s music was revolutionary. Before him, American concert music was almost entirely based on European models. After him, through Copland, Cage and beyond, American “classical” music found its own voice.
