The book cover of "Listening to Charles Ives: Variations on His America" by J. Peter Burkholder

J. Peter Burkholder’s recent book Listening to Charles Ives: Variations on His America (Amadeus Press) won the award for Best History in Recorded Classical Music from the Association for Recorded Sound Collections. For the centennial of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, he supervised and edited a commemorative book, Celebrating 100 Years of Music 1921-2021, for which ten musicology MA and PhD students at IU each wrote the text and chose photos and documents for a chapter on one decade. Peter appeared in Charles Ives’s America, a video produced by Joseph Horowitz for Naxos, and in a video panel on Ives (and on Listening to Charles Ives) for the Charles Ives Society.
