Aaron Copland’s America with pianist Michael Arnowitt, July 20th, 4PM

Bryan Memorial Gallery and the Cambridge Arts Council present:

Aaron Copland’s America with pianist Michael Arnowitt

Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 4 PM

Pianist Michael Arnowitt performs a program surveying the music of Aaron Copland, who created what is considered today to be a distinctively American sound in classical music. His landmark compositions from the 1930’s and 1940’s used energetic jazz rhythms and folk song material  from different regions of the United States and Mexico, blended into his own classical music writing style to evoke our nation’s vast landscape. Michael Arnowitt will perform music from Copland’s Four Piano Blues, Piano Variations, El Salon Mexico, and Copland’s famous Appalachian Spring. Also included on the program is Conversation at the Soda Fountain, from the music Copland wrote for the film version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.    

Copland was one of a wave of American composers who travelled to Paris in the early twentieth century to study with the renowned teacher Nadia Boulanger at the Fontainebleau School in France, a program Michael Arnowitt also attended some 60 years later. While Copland was influenced by his European travels and being exposed to the great modern composers of the time such as Igor Stravinsky, Copland returned to our country determined to create something uniquely American. The optimistic, clear tone of his musical style became iconic and has influenced American composers to the present day and contributed to the cultural creation of an American consciousness and character.

There is no charge for this program although a program donation is gratefully received.
