The Amazing
Aaron Copland

Aaron Copland was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1900 and died in New York in 1990. His original last name was Kaplan.

Copland was a composer, conductor and pianist. His distinguished teachers included Rubin Goldmark (1917) and Nadia Boulanger (1921). As a composer, Copland experimented with many influences including jazz and Schoenberg’s techniques.

Compositions like El salon México (1936) and Billy the Kid (1938) show Copland’s desire to make his scores more audience accessible. Copland’s hard work and dedication to his field resulted in many awards and honors, including the Congressional Medal of Honor (1977) and Pulitzer Prize for Music (1944).

An Amazing Copland Fact

If you thought that Copland was busy enough as a composer, conductor and pianist, then try throwing author into the mix. He wrote several books. Oh yes… he was also a frequent lecturer!
