Music from Our Town
Remember Thornton Wilder's great American play, Our Town? In 1940 it was made into a movie, directed by Sam Wood, starring William Holden as George and Martha Scott as Emily. The great American composer Aaron Copeland wrote the music for the film.
These are three selections from a suite for piano from the film's music, played by Eric Parkin. Listening to them makes me acutely aware of Copeland's influence on so many of the musicians I like, including some of the young jazz guys like Taylor Eigsti.
