Happy Birthday Aaron Copland

Amer­i­can com­pos­er Aaron Cop­land was born on this date in the year 1900.

In hon­or of his 111th Birth­day, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is all Mod­ern Amer­i­can Clas­si­cal music, with a heavy empha­sis on Cop­land’s works as well as pieces by Leonard Bern­stein, Samuel Bar­ber, Leroy Ander­son and more.

Gabrielle is a rabid Cop­land Fan­girl and once had a music pro­fes­sor tell her that he would not be sur­prised that she would mar­ry Aaron Cop­land if it were pos­si­ble. Cop­land was actu­al­ly alive when the pro­fes­sor made this state­ment, how­ev­er the 70 year age dif­fer­ent might have been a chal­lenge.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
