CHARLES IVES Symphony No. 3 “The Camp Meeting” (1901—1912) First performed: New York, May 5, 1947, by the New York Little Symphony Lou Harrison, cond. Awarded the: Pulitzer Prize in 1947 ASSOCIATED MUSIC PUBLISHERS, INC. New York NOTE score, which supersedes the one published in 1947 by Arrow Music Press, has been newly checked against manuscript sources, etc. In this task, Henry Cowell has given invaluable assistance, which is hereby gratefully acknowledged. The most problematic aspect of any claim of authenticity concerns the strings. The sources are offen vague and contradictory, and Ives himself is known to have wanted it this way. As a result, a great many ambiguities must of necessity remain unresolved, The present score contains all the “div.” markings which appear in the final manuscript score. It also contains (in parentheses) the additional divisi_ mar found in the Arrow score. Bracketed divisi markings, as well as a few other indica- tions, are editorial additions. No “unis.” or “non div. indications appear in either the manuscript or the Arrow score. Performers will have to decide from case to case how to play unmarked double-stops, etc., depending in many cases on the number of strings available. The frequent dovble-slurring in the strings has been retained the way it ‘appears in the final manuscript score. Ives is known to have wanted the effect of non-uniform bowing in many instances. However, practically all slurring, throughout the manuscript, is inconsistent, incomplete, and ambiguous. Moreover, even when it is fairly clear it does not always match the slurring in the Arrow score. The slurring in the present score is an attempt toward a comprot solution, based mostly on the Arrow score, with occasional restorations of the manuscript slurring where it seemed more appropriate. Self-evident dynamics have been added throughout this score (all instruments) without having been identified as editorial additions. Others appear in square brackets. The abbreviation “‘sub."" at sudden dynamic changes has also been added here and there. INSTRUMENTATION Flute 2 Horns in F Oboe Trombone Clarinet in Bb Bells (ad lib.)
