For composers and lovers of American art music, the American Academy of Arts and Letters has recreated the studio of Charles Ives exactly as it was in his West Redding Connecticut home. “The academy will open its new Charles Ives Studio to the public from March 6 to April 12, and from May 22 to June 15. Thereafter, it will open only for gallery exhibitions, although scholars, musicians and school groups can visit by appointment.” (via NYTimes) Read the full article here.
Refinersfire had the privilege to visit this masterfully recreated snapshot into the life of America’s composition forefather at the invitation of Ultra Violet while attending an exhibition that featured a stellar display of her most recent art. I was nearly brought to tears by this intimate portrait of the life and times of “our first really great composer… our Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson of music – Leonard Bernstein.”
