Aaron Copland
"Fanfare for the Common Man"
Researcher: Rachel Sahlman Artist: Dick Strandberg
Aaron Copland, one of America's greatest composers, was the fifth child born into a family of Russian-Jewish immigrants in Brooklyn, New York. He was born on November 14, 1900. However, it was not until he reached his teens that Copland began to show an interest in music. He learned to play the piano from his older sister Laurine, and in less than one year, Copland had learned everything she could teach him. Following much pestering of his father, Copland was allowed to take formal lessons. After attending his first concert at age 15, Copland decided to become a composer.
Upon graduating high school, Copland studied harmony and counterpoint through a correspondence course, a very difficult way to learn music. He was then referred to Rubin Goldmark, who was a specialist in harmony. Copland dreamt of studying music in France, and for the next several years, he saved his money and continued to practice. In 1920, Copland was granted a scholarship, and in the summer of 1921, he traveled to the American Conservatory at Fontainebleau.
In France, Copland studied with Nadia Boulanger and became her first American student in composition. Copland studied in France for three years, then returned to New York with a commission from his teacher. While working as a pianist in a Pennsylvania resort, Copland composed the Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, for Boulanger's American appearances. The work premiered at Carnegie Hall with the New York Symphony Orchestra, under conductor Walter Damrosch.

Aaron Copland
As much as anyone, Aaron Copland established American concert music through his compositions, polemics, promotions, and just plain hard work. He belongs to a generation of composers - along with Virgil Thomson Roy Harris , and Walter Piston - which not only raised our native music to a thoroughly professional level, but put it on an equal footing with contemporary developments in European modernism. As 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 Grohg (later reworked as the Dance Symphony ) to an Expressionist libretto by the theater critic Harold Clurman. The rhythms in the faster sections gave some very well-known European conductors fits. Again, they weren't precisely the jazz of the time, but they would have fit right into be-bop. In his first period during the 1920s, he tries out his own brand of symphonic jazz in such works as

Review by Andrew Keech Aaron Copland was one of America's most important composers, being the major influence on the style and feel of American classical and to some extent film music during the middle of the twentieth century and he has left a legacy that will affect composers for years to come. This release from Telarc, inspired by the hundredth anniversary of the composer's birth, is therefore highly significant as it contains premiere recordings of four scores which demonstrate Aaron Copland's versatility and style in the late thirties and forties, probably his most creative period. The first featured score was commissioned for the 1939 World's Fair to create a backdrop for a puppet show in the Hall of Pharmacy. The work, entitled From Sorcery To Science is deliciously Copland and full of glimpses of his many distinctive styles. The suite contains highly entertaining pastiches from around the world and through history as Chinese medicine, witches, alchemists, African Voodoo and the "modern" pharmacist are showcased in turn. The finale, 'March Of The Americas" is particularly memorable, displaying oceans of optimism and patriotism.

A aron Copland was one of the most respected American classical composers of the twentieth century. By incorporating popular forms of American music such as jazz and folk into his compositions, he created pieces both exceptional and innovative. As a spokesman for the advancement of indigenous American music, Copland made great strides in liberating it from European influence. Today, ten years after his death, Copland's life and work continue to inspire many of America's young composers. Martha Graham 's "Appalachian Spring" (1944), for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. Both ballets presented views of American country life that corresponded to the folk traditions Copland was interested in. Probably the most important and successful composition from this time was his patriotic "A Lincoln Portrait" (1942). The piece for voice and orchestra presents quotes from Lincoln's writings narrated over Copland's musical composition.

  • Copland 'Short Symphony' Has Premiere Here (January 10, 1944)
    "In more recent years Mr. Copland has chosen to write in a much simpler and more direct manner . . . The symphony, being both abstract and in the less effective early style, cannot be reckoned among its composer's important contributions to the literature."

    Aaron Copland: Icon of American culture 1900-1990
    American composers wrote with a German accent in the 19th century, and adopted a more fashionable French accent early in the 20th century. Only with the 1930s work of Aaron Copland did American music find its own loping voice. Copland's music just before, during and after World War II defined the American style. Great Americana film scores from Elmer Bernstein's ``To Kill a Mockingbird'' and ``The Magnificent Seven'' to Randy Newman's ``The Natural'' are homages to the Copland sound and attitude. Copland himself wrote eight film scores, including ``Of Mice and Men,'' ``The Red Pony'' and ``The Heiress.'' But he really launched the Americana movement not on the silver screen but in the concert hall and on the ballet stage. His greatest strength as a composer was his simplicity of expression, his ability to make a musical point memorably but without fuss. That's why three of his six ballet scores - ``Rodeo,'' ``Billy the Kid'' and ``Appalachian Spring'' - are loved even by people who hate modern music. Copland's first works, in the 1920s and '30s, were self-consciously avant-garde for their time, with brashly dissonant harmonies. Copland was committed to tonality, but primitivism had been in vogue since Stravinsky's ``The Rite of Spring'' premiered just before World War I.
