πŸŽ‰ Happy birthday, Aaron Copland! πŸŽ‰


Aaron Copland's peers and critics called him "the Dean of American Composers" and that legacy lives on today. His composition style evokes the vast American landscape and pioneer spirit, with works like 'Appalachian Spring', 'Billy the Kid', Rodeo' and 'Fanfare for the Common Man'. He wrote in a "populist'" or "vernacular" style, that was deliberately accessible and appropriate for the Depression and post-Depression eras.

Copland composed some of the most gorgeous music. I love the Fanfare for Common Man the most. I get chills every time!
