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.

Simply put, Aaron Copland is one of the most important composers of the twentieth century. He codified a concert music sound that was distinctly "American," and single-handedly created a generous path for composers in his native land, bringing to "the new world" what was mostly, up until that point, an imported and exclusively European art form. He lived a long and productive life, one that spanned almost the entire century, and worked not only as a composer, but as a conductor, pianist, teacher, author, concert promoter and generous friend to music. His parents immigrated from Poland and Lithuania to New York City in their adolescence; Aaron was their fifth child, born in 1900. He was gifted at the piano, studying with Victor Wittgenstein and Clarence Adler. He took lessons in harmony and counterpoint with Goldmark, an old-fashioned teacher who was dedicated to Beethoven and Fux, and against whom Copland rebelled, as children do, becoming enamoured of Scriabin, Debussy and Ives (whom Goldmark called "dangerous"). Eventually, when he was twenty, the young composer-to-be set sail for Paris and the tutelage of Nadia Boulanger. Under Boulanger Copland began to write his first full-fledged pieces, as well as keeping an involved notebook of musical ideas, an example of his legendary parsimonious nature, always thrifty with everything, especially notes. Using the new knowledge his teacher had imparted to him about Stravinsky, he also cultivated an interest in Jazz, mostly as seen through the eyes of the French, though he did have some knowledge of it from his time in New York. When he returned to America, it was with the score to a ballet called Grohg, along with sketches that would become the Symphonic Ode and Music for the Theatre in his satchel. He had begun to find his voice.

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
November 14, 2000 marks the 100th anniversary of Aaron Copland's birth. Visit A Copland Celebration
Aaron Copland was the pioneer of American music he showed the world how to write classical music in an American way. He was born in 1900, when Americans were rarely recognised as composers in the music world. So Copland went to Europe for serious study, and, in the 1920s, wrote pieces with the flavour of jazz. European classical composers were also influenced by jazz at this time, as they were searching for new ways to bring their music into the 20th century. Copland's early works Grohg and Music for the Theatre show jazz influence. But he was soon to shed this in favour of strictly classical yet modernist works. With the great depression of the 1930s, when millions of Americans were unable to find work, the appeal of abstract music began to wain. So beginning in 1938, Copand produced a series of ballets that were to be widely heard and musically influential: Billy the Kid (a ballet about a legendary western outlaw, complete with cowboy songs, commissioned in 1938 by Kirstein for Eugene Loring), Rodeo (another Wild West ballet, about a cowgirl's search for a man) and Appalachian Spring (commissioned by the choreographer Martha Graham). When World War II began, the Cincinnati Symphony needed a patriotic American hero, and Copland by now one of the most famous composers in America wrote A Lincoln Portrait. For the same orchestra, he created his noble Fanfare for the Common Man.

Born: November 14, 1900. Brooklyn, New York
Died: December 2, 1990. Tarrytown, New York
In his own words...

"To explain the creative musician's basic objective in elementary terms, I would say that a composer writes music to express and communicate and put down in permanent form certain thoughts, emotions and states of being. These thoughts and emotions are gradually formed by the contact of the composer's personality with the world in which he lives. He expresses these thoughts (musical ones...) in the musical language of his own time. The resultant work of art should speak to men and women of the artist's own time with a directness and immediacy of communicative power that no previous art expression can give." American composer, conductor and author. Copland helped define a twentieth century American sound. His influence on his contemporaries and students has been tremendous.
Aaron Copland seems at first to be an odd person to create a musical style that combined the myths of the American West and the styles of Latin American music into a populist music that spoke to a large segment of American society. Copland was the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, grew up in New York, and found his musical voice in the international, avant-garde atmosphere of Paris in the 1920s. In New York he was part of a musical elite, championing the cause of modern music. At the same time, he had ties to the political and social left with its reformist agenda. Yet it could be argued that all of these elements were important ingredients, not just in the fabric of America in the 20s and 30s, but in the creation of a distinctly American aesthetic.

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.")

    Aaron Copland
    In the first half of the twentieth century, Aaron Copland was at the forefront of American music. He was a skillful and determined composer who incorporated jazz, European post-Romanticism, and even serialism into his works. But it was his distinctively American pieces that have made him famous they're vigorous, energetic, highly rhythmic and extremely accessible, and Copland's original audiences loved them.

    Copland, Aaron (1900-1990)
    page: In the course of a long life that spanned nearly the entire twentieth century, Aaron Copland composed a significant number of frequently performed musical works that have become so ingrained in the American cultural consciousness that the mere hearing of them evokes for many the idea of American history, struggle, and courage. Copland was born November 14, 1900 to an impoverished Lithuanian Jewish immigrant family in Brooklyn, New York, and his early experiences were shaped by the urban "melting pot" of American culture. That he was also homosexual contributed to the outsider status that might be said to manifest itself in the celebration of the underdog, "the common man," that characterizes his music.

    Like many other prominent twentieth-century American composers, Aaron Copland was trained in France by Nadia Boulanger. His music, however, is best known for its rejection of European, neo-Romantic forms and the creation of a uniquely American, modernist style in his orchestral works, particularly his ballets and film scores.

    Copland (born in Brooklyn, N.Y., nov. 14, 1900) began serious musical study in his early teens. He was the first of many American musicians to study with Nadia Boulanger in Paris (1921-24). On his return to the United States in 1925 and after the performance of his Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, he became identified with brash modernism. While maintaining his penchant for the jazzy and experimental, Copland also developed a folksy American style that won him a wide audience. From 1925 to 1927, Copland held a Guggenheim grant, the first of many awards, commissions, and prizes he received. A prolific composer, Copland also taught and lectured extensively and wrote several books. He appeared frequently as a conductor of his own and other composers' music.
    In 1964 he was awarded the Medal of Freedom by the U.S. government. Copland is perhaps most famous for his superb ballet scores, such as Billy the Kid (1938), Rodeo (1942), and Appalachian Spring (1944), which are all based on American folklore.
