[+] Starr, Lawrence. "The Early Styles of Charles Ives." 19th-Century Music 7 (Summer 1983): 71-80.

Ives's early works display a remarkable coexistence of pieces in conservative and radical styles. However, his interest in emulating and quoting European composers can be seen not only in the conservative works written for courses at Yale, such as the First Symphony, of which the scherzo is modeled on the corresponding movement from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, but also in those from before and after his formal study, such as the Slow March from 114 Songs where Ives quotes from Handel's Saul.

Works: Ives: Symphony No. 1 (76), Slow March (79).
