Exploring_music_logo_small From waves of grain to stars and stripes, Aaron Copland defined the soundtrack to much of America. This week, we’ll trace his trek from the heart of Brooklyn to the heart of a nation. Featured works include Appalachian Spring performed by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and Our Town with Copland himself conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. Bill tells the story of Copland’s trip to Mexico that inspired his symphonic movement El Salón México, and we will listen to the New York Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein perform it with pure joy. Episode 5 of 5.
