What you'll learn in this lecture class:

Aaron Copland and the Sound of America, Part I, 1938-1939

By the latter half of the 1930’s, Copland was concerned that, in his words, “…the conventional concert public was apathetic or indifferent to anything but the established classics,” and that “…we composers were in danger of working in a vacuum.”

He makes the conscious decision to try to reach that broader audience by exploring a new “imposed simplicity” in his music—saying what he has to say in the simplest possible manner—and by collaborating with artists in other mediums such as dance, film and theater. This lecture will explore key works of this moment, including the groundbreaking, folk-based masterpiece ballet Billy the Kid (1938), and his iconic score for the original classic film version of Of Mice and Men (1939).
