Aaron Copland Steven D. Brown
Fri May 26 2000 01:10
The year 2000 marks the 100th anniversary of Aaron Copland's birth. While Copland's music is firmly entrenched in the repertory of orchestras in the US, there are people from several european countries that I've met who had never heard of him.

How well-known is Copland around the globe?

'Tis true,
Only a very few of his works are played around the European circuit and I have the feeling that people think that they know him well as a composer through owning a copy of Appalachain Spring and a few hearings of Rodeo, Billy the Kid and El Sálon México. The Emily Dickinson songs get the occasional airing, too. And, of course, Fanfare for the Common Man has made him almost as famous as Emerson, Lake and Palmer! Perhaps it's time to hear something else. And why not in his centenary. I would say, though, that for a 20thC clasical composer, his name is quite well-known around the globe.

Try listening to GMN's recording of A Quiet City on this site. Terrific trumpet playing by Michael Sachs, the principal trumpet of the Cleveland Orchestra.
