Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast

Hello and welcome to Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast!  This podcast is for anyone who loves classical music, or is just getting ready to dive in for the very first time.  Thanks so much, and I hope you enjoy it!

This week we take a look back at a favorite episode of mine exploring the piece that practically invented the Americana style of classical music. We'll take apart this wonderful work and compare its chamber version for 13 instruments along with the full orchestral version. We'll also hear amazing archival footage of Copland himself rehearsing the piece with a small ensemble, working diligently to find that elusive "American" sound. Enjoy the Simple Gifts of Copland's Appalachian Spring!
