Three Latin American Sketches and Remembering Vivian Perlis

NYC Music Service's Philip Rothman has been busy working on another new Copland edition -- a newly engraved version of Three Latin American Sketches. In his latest post on the blog Scoring Notes, Rothman shares a few tips on engraving after his latest experiences with the project and the work's original hand-copied parts.

Rothman also takes a moment to share memories of the late Vivian Perlis, who passed away earlier this month. Perlis was not only the founder and former director of the Yale Oral History of American Music, but also a close collaborator of Copland on his autobiographies and founding director of the Aaron Copland Fund for Music. Rothman got to know Perlis through working together on the new Copland editions, and shares memories from their time working on the Clarinet Concerto.
