FROM THE STAGE
 Jonathan Reycraft, trombone, on Copland’s Symphony No. 3:
 “Copland’s Symphony No. 3 is a climactic moment for American composition. World  War II has ended, and the mood of the nation has grown optimistic, pros-perous. You can hear this in each movement of Copland’s symphony. Each comes from a very different place.“The beginning of the piece has almost a primitive feel to it. For me it’s
a look back at the country before it was settled. Copland asks for the rst
movement to be played ‘with simple expression.’ He contrasts this with the churning, industrial sounds of the second movement. It’s America full of energy, of industrial output. The third movement continues with a devel-
opment of themes from the rst movement—more reective, contemplative. There is conict, but resolution is found in the spirit of dance—the balletic inuence that Copland had gained from working with Agnes de Mille and Martha Graham. The nal movement is profoundly uplifting, with the famous
Fanfare for the Common Man
 theme. It was a valid message for its time, just as it is today.”
