CBS Almanac: Aaron Copland

Music from Copland House Principal Violinist Curtis Macomber and Founding Pianist Michael Boriskin appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, as part of the nationally-telecast program’s regular Almanac feature. Hosted by Jane Pauley, the segment marked Copland’s passing in 1990, and included a brief profile of Copland’s career, referenced Copland House, and an live, in-studio performance of an excerpt from Copland’s own violin-piano arrangement of Hoe-Down from Rodeo.

From the article:

Today, the works of Aaron Copland – that most un-common man – are celebrated at Copland House, his former home north of New York City, now a center for music with its own resident ensemble, who joined "Sunday Morning" to perform Copland's own piano and violin arrangement of the "Hoe Down" section of the ballet "Rodeo."
