Appalachian Spring — Coffee

Few symphonic pieces evoke American vistas like Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Centered on the Shaker hymn, “Simple Gifts,” this work’s spacious tonality defined the archetypical Americana sound. The program begins with Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides, a sound-world depicting the Scottish Highlands, and Manuel de Falla’s spicy dances from his ballet, The Three-Cornered Hat.
