The Aaron Copland Collection

Along with Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland may be considered one of the most well-known and regarded American composers of the 20th century. Copland’s accolades were many throughout his long life, and the American Memory Project at the Library of Congress has seen fit that the web-browsing public will be able to learn a great deal more about Copland’s works and life. Currently, this online collection contains approximately 1000 items, including photographs of Copland at work, some of his writings, and a host of his wonderful personal correspondences with the likes of Nadia Boulanger and Benjamin Britten. Some brief highlights of his career may be gleaned through perusing the timeline offered here, and even more may be learned about the man himself by reading some of the essays written by his friends and colleagues on the occasion of his 75th birthday in 1975.
