Aaron Copland (1900-1990) is best known and loved for the hugely popular compositions he wrote 1936-49, such as Appalachian Spring, Billy the Kid, and Rodeo. He was one of the first to capture the essence of American life in sound. Together with Gershwin, Ives, and Bernstein, he created music that mirrored the world in which he lived.

This documentary looks at how a sassy New Yorker of Russian- Jewish background came to write the infectious and accessible music that established a distinctive American idiom. “Fanfare for America” surveys his life and career with archive film and specially-shot footage as well as music extracts from his works. An interview with Copland is included and his biographer, Howard Pollack, and American conductor Hugh Wolff, a leading exponent of his music, both contribute to the programme. The film shows a clip of Benny Goodman playing the Clarinet Concerto he commissioned from the composer, as well as footage of Leonard Bernstein conducting the patriotic Lincoln Portrait for speaker and orchestra, and of Martha Graham dancing in Appalachian Spring. Andreas Skipis cinematic approach to documentary making gives this profile of Aaron Copland great style and visual appeal.
