I like classical music. Well, at least some classical music. And I suppose that of all the classical composers, America’s own Aaron Copland has to be my favorite. While I’m only familiar with a handful of American symphonic composers, I will pose this question to you all.
Is Copland the greatest American composer…ever?
Listen to his “Quiet City” or “Letter From Home” or “El Salón México” or, of course, “Fanfare for the Common Man” or all of them, or any of his other works and give me your answer.
