Variations on a Theme – Home (4)

Timpani.  Brass.  Drama.  Awe.  Home.  Abroad.  The piece below, “Fanfare for the Common Man,” reminds me of our very first CD player that my dad bought with the rest of the stereo system when CD players were still sort of new; it was on this CD that my dad got with the player:

America, The Dream Goes On - Boston Pops (1984)

It gave me chills the first time I heard it.  It also gave me chills hearing the piece on a Spanish beach in 1992; the brass players and timpanist of the Kansas City Youth Symphony played this on the beach while on tour in Spain.

“Fanfare for the Common Man”
by Aaron Copland (1900-1990)
