Colorado Symphony / Andrew Litton

Aaron Copland was among the first Americans to study composition in Paris with the legendary pedagogue Nadia Boulanger, who was to guide many of the country's finest composers. When he returned home in 1924, Copland was determined to use Boulanger's training and inspiration to help found a unique style for American concert music, free from the weighty Germanic tradi - tions that had encumbered it for more than a century. He turned first to the obvious indigenous music - jazz - in such works from the late 1920s as the Piano Concerto and Music for the Theater, but he soon realized that that particular well of inspi - ration would quickly run dry for a classical composer. After a short but fruitful excursion through a more abstract style (Piano Variations, Short Symphony), Cop - land set out in another direction, which he articulated in The New Music in the early 1930s: 'I began to feel an increasing dissatisfaction with the relations of the musicloving public and the living composer. It seemed that we composers were in danger of working in a vacuum. Moreover, an entirely new public for music had grown up around the radio and the phonograph. It made no sense to ignore them and to continue writing as if they did not exist. I felt that it was worth the effort to see if I couldn't say what I had to say in the simplest possible terms.'
