Discography

About

The first comprehensive Charles Ives discography, compiled by Richard Warren, was published in 1972. In the decades following, Warren, along with staff of the Yale Collection of Historical Sound Recordings, continued documenting newly released recordings of Ives’ music. With support from the Charles Ives Society, Kevin Sherwin completed compiling the discography to include recordings until 2019, and Nicholas Brewer edited and facilitated its online publication and search functions.

This online discography is a comprehensive and searchable list, presented in order of the table of contents listed below. For each composition, recordings are listed in chronological order. The table of contents is based on the structure of James Sinclair’s A Descriptive Catalogue of the Music of Charles Ives, which reflects the current catalogue of recordings of Charles Ives’ music. For more detailed explanations of the discography’s compilation and use of this website, please see the above links to the Preface and Usage Guide.
