Unfortunately, the link to the Chicago SunTimes article I used no longer works and a quick search on the site doesn't turn it up. I don't really remember why I thought this important enough to post although I was aware of Obama's speech at the Democratic Convention the year before. But any additional context remains cloudy. In any case, the quote from the newspaper about Obama's performance skills foreshadows recent events: Obama brought an orator's skill without an actor's slick veneer to Copland's "Lincoln Portrait.'' The comforting quality of his voice gave added emotional resonance to Lincoln's words.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Aaron Copland Aaron Copland (1900–1990) was an American composer of concert and film music. Instrumental in forging a distinctly American style of composition, he was widely known as "the dean of American composers." Copland's music achieved a balance between modern music and American folk styles. The open, slowly changing harmonies of many of his works are said to evoke the vast American landscape. Copland incorporated percussive orchestration metric changes, polyrhythms polychords , and tone rows in a broad range of works for the concert hall, theater, ballet and films. In addition to being a composer, Copland was a teacher, lecturer, critic, writer and conductor – generally, but not always, of his own works.

Inspiration may be a form of super-consciousness, or
sure it is the antithesis of self-consciousness. Aaron Copland was born on November 14, 1900 in New York City. His musical works ranged from ballet and orchestral music to choral music and movie scores. For the better part of four decades Aaron Copland was considered the premier American composer.
Copland learned to play piano from an older sister. By the time he was fifteen he had decided to become a composer. His first tentative steps included a correspondence course in writing harmony. In 1921 Copland traveled to Paris to attend the newly founded music school for Americans at Fontainebleau. He was the first American student of the brilliant teacher, Nadia Boulanger . After three years in Paris he returned to New York with his first major commission, writing an organ concerto for the American appearances of Madame Boulanger. His "Symphony for Organ and Orchestra" premiered in at Carnegie Hall in 1925.

Aaron Copland
Virgil Thomson Roy Harris , and Walter Piston Igor Stravinsky once remarked, "Why call Copland a great American composer? He's a great composer." Copland's music, after his juvenalia, falls into three large periods. In the first two, he concerns himself with, among other things, trying to find a serious style which sounds American, rather than European. His main teacher, Nadia Boulanger, encouraged him in this, usually pointing out (to her) odd rhythms in his work. Copland had not noticed them before, because they were part of him. As Leonard Bernstein noted, they were the rhythms of someone who had grown up with jazz and American pop, although not necessarily jazz rhythms. As a young man in his 20s, he composes a ballet

David Raksin Remembers his Colleagues
Aaron Copland The distinguished composer Aaron Copland was born on November 4,1900 in New York City. While still a child he began to study piano; subsequently he had lessons in harmony and counterpoint with composer Rubin Goldmark and began to compose. In 1920 his first published piece, The Cat and the Mouse, for piano, was printed, and that same year he entered the American Conservatory at Fontainebleau, near Paris. There he studied composition and orchestration with the renowned pedagogue Nadia Boulanger. He returned home in 1924 and soon became active as a pianist, lecturer and activist in musical societies. One of his compositions, Music for the Theater, attracted the attention of Serge Koussevitzky, who conducted its first performance with his Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1925; Copland later appeared as soloist in his Piano Concerto with the same forces. In New York City, Walter Damrosch conducted the Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, with Nadia Boulanger, for whom it had been written, as soloist. After the performance, Damrosch turned and said to the audience, "If a young man in his twenties can compose a piece like that, by the time he is thirty he should be ready to commit murder." (Many years later, when I was interviewing Aaron for one of my radio programs, I asked him whether he had fulfilled Damrosch's prophecy. His answer, complete with his characteristic grin, was, "I don't believe so.")

If any one musician today can be singled out as the dean of American music, it is Aaron Copland. Without his scores, without his generous encouragement of an entire generation

  • Home Episodes July 11th, 2005 Aaron Copland About the Composer Copland was born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 14, 1900. The child of Jewish immigrants from Lithuania, he first learned to play the piano from his older sister. At the age of sixteen he went to Manhattan to study with Rubin Goldmark, a respected private music instructor who taught Copland the fundamentals of counterpoint and composition. During these early years he immersed himself in contemporary classical music by attending performances at the New York Symphony and Brooklyn Academy of Music. He found, however, that like many other young musicians, he was attracted to the classical history and musicians of Europe. So, at the age of twenty, he left New York for the Summer School of Music for American Students at Fountainebleau, France. Martha Graham Connected artists: Related Web sites:
