Ives Music is the first in a series of pieces that employs quotations from other music. In this case the quotations are from Ives himself. In the first movement,Largo, the "human faith" melody from Concord Sonata is referenced. In the second movement, Romanza, the quotation is more direct as the piece concludes with a rhythmically altered statement of the opening of Ives' song Romanzo di Central Park.
