Copland: Since 1943by Aaron Copland, Vivian Perlis
Hailed as important, entertaining, and revealing, Copland is the memoir of one of America's most respected and loved musical pioneers. This is the story of a self-described "brash young man from Brooklyn" who went on to become a founding father of"serious" American music with well-known works that include "Appalachian Spring", "Lincoln Portrait", the movie scores for "Of Mice and Men" and "Our Town", and numerous orchestral and chamber works. Featured in the book are Leonard Bernstein, Gertrude Stein, Agnes de Mille, Kurt Weill, and many others from this explosively creative period.
The centenary celebrations marking Aaron Copland's birth will take place at the Tanglewood Festival, The New York City Opera, the American Musical Festival, and more. Copland will be discussed and celebrated at these events.
