Happy Birthday Aaron Copland

Aaron Copland

In hon­or of Amer­i­can com­pos­er Aaron Cop­land’s 117th birth­day today, our pro­gram on our main stream focus­es on his works. Today’s pro­gram is by Gabrielle Riel.

Here is a descrip­tion of Aaron Cop­land tak­en direct­ly from the font of all knowl­edge, Wikipedia:

Aaron Cop­land (Novem­ber 14, 1900 – Decem­ber 2, 1990) was an Amer­i­can com­pos­er, com­po­si­tion teacher, writer, and lat­er a con­duc­tor of his own and oth­er Amer­i­can music. Cop­land was referred to by his peers and crit­ics as “the Dean of Amer­i­can Com­posers.” The open, slow­ly chang­ing har­monies in much of his music are typ­i­cal of what many peo­ple con­sid­er to be the sound of Amer­i­can music, evok­ing the vast Amer­i­can land­scape and pio­neer spir­it.
