Martha Graham and her ensemble in Appalachian Spring | photo: Library of Congress, Music Division

Aaron Copland’s 1944 ballet Appalachian Spring was co-commissioned by choreographer and dancer Martha Graham. The original music required only 13 instruments (because performance space for the premiere was limited). The music won Copland the Pulitzer Prize in 1945. That same year, Copland condensed the music into a suite for full orchestra. Listen to this Suite, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, today at 2:00 p.m.
