American Landscapes is a weekly potpourri of the best of American music, hosted by Michael Campion. You’ll be treated to works by composers such as Copland, Samuel Barber, George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, Edward MacDowell, George Chadwick and many others. There will be much-loved music that never gets old, music to get reacquainted with and music that you’ll be hearing for the first time, with plenty to add to your list of favorites. And every piece you hear will be born in the USA!
