Personalities | Carl Ruggles | Modern Era | Classical
Ruggles wrote only a handful of works, of which the most important are the orchestral Men and Mountains (1924) and Sun-Treader (1926), Portals (1926) for strings and Angels (1924) for brass ensemble. They exhibit a boldly powerful, big-boned atonal style that at times approaches his friends Ives and Varèse, but remains independent. He worked slowly and painstakingly, and ceased composing in his early seventies.
