Taken from his own concert suite (dedicated toÂ¦Leonard Bernstein) of his film score, Copland's own words best describe theÂ¦musical approach to “Grover's Corners.” He explained, “For the filmÂ¦version, they were counting on the music to translate the transcendentalÂ¦aspects of the story. I tried for clean and clear sounds and in generalÂ¦usedÂ¦straight-forward harmonies and rhythms that would project the serenity andÂ¦sense of security of the story.”.
