Composer & Westchester resident

Aaron Copland was considered by his peers to be the Dean of American composers. Although born in Brooklyn to Russian-Jewish immigrants, Copland became a Westchester County resident and his home overlooking the Hudson River still exists to the north of Lyndhurst as Copland House, an artist-in-residence and performance program for composers. Copland’s music is often considered to evoke the American landscape and the titles of many of his pieces have landscape references to them.  Here, Copland House performers play a number of short landscape-themed piano pieces by Copland.
