Note to You, A; Aaron Copland

07/02/2000

His music makes us think of the landscape of America: open fields, prosperity and strength. More than any other composer, Copland succeeded in creating a distinctive “American” sound. It’s the 100th anniversary of his birth this year-the perfect time to explore this Copland legacy. Virginia Eskin welcomes American Music scholar Judith Tick, for a look at Copland, this week on ANTY.
