A Copland Tribute
A Copland Tribute is a collage of passages from the works of Aron Copeland and was created in 1985 to honor the eminent Brooklyn-born composer on his 85th birthday. The piece begins with a statement of 'Fanfare for the Common Man', which was originally a work for brass and percussion, honoring the role of the common man during World War II. Following this brief statement come several passages from Appalachian Spring, a ballet composed for Martha Graham and commissioned the by Elizabeth Coolidge Foundation. The piece concludes with music from two dance episodes from the ballet Rodeo; Buckaroo Holiday and Hoe-down. Originally titled The Courting at Burnt Ranch, Rodeo was created in collabration with choreographer Agnes de Mille. This arrangement by Clare Grundman provides short glimpses of Copland's music.
