    This is the "canonical" version. Pay particular attention to the rhythms, how they intertwine. Very short, leaves you wanting more. We are repeating a section to lengthen it.

  • 2007-04-19 00:00:00.0 Difficult alto line

    The alto line is complex, and requires considerable skill and breath support to be able to produce with good intonation and balance. The melody, normally in the soprano line, suffers from being too familiar, and has the same difficulties as the alto line. Like most Copland pieces, it also requires...

    crisp rhythmic discipline to produce.
