Copland - Appalachian Spring Suite

By Aaron Copland

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/copland-appalachian-spring-suite-sheet-music/17617182

Piano
Composed by Aaron Copland (1900-1990). Arranged by Bryan Stanley. BH Piano. Boosey & Hawkes #M051246373. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019195).

Item Number: HL.48019195

ISBN 1423454766. 9x12 inches.

Copland's famous ballet suite has never been published in a solo piano transcription. This new version is idiomatic for the instrument, retaining all the music from the standard 1945 orchestra suite.

  • February 08, 2013 Finally an arrangement!

    Every time I have listened to this composition, I have wished I could play it with the piano. Now finally it is reality! I was afraid that the arrangement would be too difficult to my playing skills. Fortunately Sheet Music Plus provided the site with four invaluable "sound bites". I...

    could instantly see that I can actually play it along and enjoy the result. The final two pages belong to the best music ever written by any composer. Tears come to my eyes every time. Thank you, Sheet Music Plus!

  • June 05, 2009 Great arrangement!

    I can only echo the praise in "As good as it can get," the other review of this work. Kudos to the transcriber who did a phenomenal job of preserving the marvelous chords in the orchestral version. The occasional "baldness" in the arrangement is due to the limitations of the...

    piano itself. There is not an overabundance of technical challenge and few chords require more than an octave span. This is a great arrangement of a stunning classic!

    As long as I know "Appalachian Spring", I have been waiting for a piano transcription. Thus, I was thrilled to see that this work has finally been achieved. Of course, the piano can't fully display the whole orchestral range of the ballet, but it gets quite close. I appreciate...

    this edition and am very happy to play it. It can only be advised to anyone who likes Copland.
