Aaron Copland's name is, for many, synonymous with American music. It was his pioneering achievement to break free from Europe and create a concert music that is recognizably, characteristically American. At the same time, he was able to stamp his music with a composititional personality so vivid as to transcend stylistic boundaries, making every work - from the easily-grasped to the demanding - indentifiable as his alone.
