Chamber Music of Aaron Copland:
The 2019 Copland Festival opens with a selection of Copland's small but powerful chamber music, including the Duo for Flute and Piano, the Piano Quartet, and more.
Copland and Mexico:
Cultural historian Joseph Horowitz curates a program focusing on the relationship between Aaron Copland and the dynamic Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas. A screening of the emotionally searing film Redes is accompanied by a live performance of the original Revueltas score.
Copland and the Cold War:
Copland's life spanned nearly the entire 20th century – he experienced it all. Here we examine his musical and social responses to the political landscape facing America's artists in the period following WWII.
A Copland Celebration:
Artistic Director Keith Lockhart celebrates Aaron Copland in three of his best known works for orchestra—Appalachian Spring, the Third Symphony, and the Clarinet Concerto.
The Copland Festival closes as we welcome back Joseph Horowitz to present a program juxtaposing two powerful American landscapes—the Western expanse, and the city.
