The Complete Copland - by Aaron Copland and Vivian Perlis, now available from Pendragon Press.

Pendragon Press is proud to announce the publication of The Complete Copland by Aaron Copland and Vivian Perlis, the founding director of the Oral History of American Music (OHAM) archive at Yale University.
              
This hardbound volume with 150 illustrations and a new note to the reader by Ms. Perlis, combines and updates the two earlier books she co-authored with Copland, Copland:1900 Through 1942 and Copland: Since 1943.

This candid, colorful memoir begins with Copland's Brooklyn childhood and takes us through his years in Paris, the creation of his early works, and his years at Tanglewood, through his death in 1990 at age 90. Rich with remembrances from Leonard Bernstein, Virgil Thomson, and Nadia Boulanger, as well as a trove of letters, photographs, and scores from Copland's collection, this is one of our most vivid musical autobiographies, and an enduring record of an American maestro's explosively creative coming of age. 


The Complete Copland is a must-read for Copland fans and students of 20th century American music. A discount off the list price is available for friends of OHAM.
