      An American icon, Aaron Copland's music evokes the wide-open spaces of American landscapes and gives voice to a pioneering spirit of adventure in pieces like Rodeo and Appalachian Spring. In this piece, the sounds of rollicking American folk music are paired with achingly beautiful melodies that speak of the characters' longing for "the promise of living" a full life. Don't miss this American classic!
