New Edition of Billy the Kid One Step Closer to Completion

The latest work in Copland's catalogue to receive a new edition makeover is one step closer to being completed as of this past weekend. The new edition of Billy The Kid received its first public “road test” performance with the Peabody Symphony Orchestra on February 16, 2019, and all seemed to go smoothly.

Over the past decade, a series of projects to create new editions of some of Copland’s biggest works has been underway. Working with the Aaron Copland Fun for Music and Boosey & Hawkes, Philip Rothman of NYC Music Services has been very involved since the beginning, serving as program advisor and editorial consultant for newly engraved editions of works such as Symphony No. 3, Clarinet Concerto, and Old American Songs. This initiative also saw the completion of a new edition of Appalachian Spring (Ballet in one act for full orchestra) in 2016, including some never before fully orchestrated music.
