Let there be no unanswered question about Charles Ives' place in classical music. He was one of America's most important and original composers, whose music is still performed frequently by musicians across the world. Many of his works were composed in a Redding, CT house, which faces destruction if bought by property investors. Please save and preserve the house, an American musical landmark of cultural and historical significance to the world which must not be destroyed.
