Aaron Copland Symphony No. 3

Gould’s famous American Salute, an electrifying set of variations on the Civil War tune, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” leads to a touching remembrance of Americans, whether Union or Confederate, who lost their lives in the Civil War. A commission by the Philadelphia Orchestra produced a rare partnership of two young composers who created this work in 2003. Copland’s final symphony, premiered in 1946, captures in sound the confidence of the World’s undisputed superpower, post-war America, building a thrilling climax from Copland’s own “Fanfare for the Common Man.”
