Passacaglia

Copland sailed to France in June , intending to spend a year there he ultimately stayed for three expanding his horizons and furthering his musical studies. In October of that year he met the famous teacher Nadia Boulanger , who, after hearing one of his compositions, accepted him as a student at four dollars, 20 cents per lesson. The rigorous program of study included analysis, score reading, and orchestration. Copland was also expected to compose, and under Boulanger's guidance, he wrote a brace of works, including the Passacaglia for piano. In November , five months after Copland 's return to the United States, the work was performed again at the first Young Composers' Concert held by the League of Composers; this was, in fact, Copland 's American premiere as a composer. In , the Passacaglia was choreographed by Helen Tamiris as the ballet Olympus Americanus, marking the first time Copland 's music was used in this context -- a bellwether of the composer's singular contribution to the ballet repertoire.

He wrote, "The work appeared cold to some critics when it was first heard, but Mademoiselle recognized the underlying emotion in it right away. The Passacaglia is dedicated to her. Aaron Copland.
