Notes & Reviews:

Throughout the course of his compositional career, Aaron Copland was determined to develop a sophisticated musical style that was recognizably American. It is through the works on this recording that Copland's place as the foremost American composer of his time was firmly established. The Pulitzer Prize winning "Appalachian Spring" was composed for Martha Graham's dance company and is the work that made Copland the first American composer to win global recognition and popularity.
