For a different side (no pun intended) of Copland, you should listen to his Organ Symphony. It is not the usual "Americana" style of his
Appalachian Spring or Billy the Kid. In fact, if it wasn't for some of the rhythms in the second movement, you would never be able to
guess that this is a Copland work, or an American work for that matter. It sounds very early 20th century Europe, maybe due to the
influence his teacher Nadia Boulanger exerted on him when he was studying composition.
