Copland Opener

(Based on themes by Aaron Copland)

Series: Performance/Easy Limited Edition Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Jay Bocook Arranger: Will Rapp

Level: 4

From legendary American composer Aaron Copland comes some of the most important and identifiable themes in our musical history. Jay masterfully introduces Fanfare for the Common Man softly at first, then lets it build into an impressive and soaring statement. Themes from Symphony No. 3 follow as the woodwinds are showcased, and the production finishes in grand and exciting style! Also included is an optional segue for use as a seamless transition to The Promise of Living (Inventory HL #48019158).

“This excellent arrangement of several themes from Copland's Third Symphony and Fanfare for the Common Man is well scored...This arrangement is faithful to the original style, yet the themes are creatively organized.”--The Instrumentalist
