COPLAND Symphony No. 3

"This symphony has become an American monument," Leonard Bernstein said of Copland's Third, "like the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial." Of all the gifted composers who came of age in our country in the 20th century, Copland created music that most closely reflects the American character - the land, the people, the wide open spaces, its beauty and majesty. The Third Symphony concludes with an unforgettable exploration of the musical theme from his popular Fanfare for the Common Man.
