Charles Edward Ives (October 20, 1874May 19, 1954) was an American composer of modernist classical music. He is widely regarded as one of the first American classical composers of international significance. Ives' music was largely ignored during his life, and many of his works went unperformed for many years. Over time, Ives would come to be regarded as one of the "American Originals", a composer working in a uniquely American musical idiom while experimenting with musical techniques including bitonality, tone clusters, and quarter tones.
