U.S. composer. Born to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents, he studied composition in Paris with Nadia Boulanger . In his early works he experimented with jazz rhythms and then with an abstract style influenced by Neoclassicism. After the mid-1930s he was concerned with making music accessible to a wider audience and adopted notably American traits in his compositions. Famously public-spirited and generous, he came to be unofficially regarded as the U.S.'s national composer. He is best known for his three ballets based on American folk material: Billy the Kid Rodeo (1942), and Appalachian Spring (1944, Pulitzer Prize). He also wrote film scores, orchestral works, and operas. In his later years Copland refined his treatment of Americana, making his references less overt, and he produced a number of works using the experimental technique of serialism . He continued to lecture and to conduct through the mid-1980s. document.writeln(AAMB2);

Aaron Copland
American Composer
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.

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 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

Aaron Copland
Considered by many the greatest American composer of the 20th century, Copland dedicated himself early on in his composing career to seeking and defining a distinctly American sound. His list of works includes ballets, orchestral compositions, film scores, and choral works.
His most popular and best known music includes 'Appalachian Spring', 'Rodeo', and 'Billy the Kid'. Most everyone today is at least familiar with excerpts from Copland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man' due to its wide use in conjunction with theme music for the Olympics, and numerous other commercial applications.
In addition to composing, he was also skilled as a conductor and there are many fine recordings with Copland conducting his own music still available. His lifelong friend Leonard Bernstein also conducted many excellent recorded performances of his work.
