WATCH: Duo Performs Copland Piece at Staller

Enrico Sartori on flute, and Tyler Wottrich piano, perform the first movement from the American composer's, 'Duo for Flute and Piano.'

Fans of 20th Century composer Aaron Copland will probably appreciate this recent YouTube video of flutist Enrico Sartori and pianist Tyler Wottrich performing the first movement from the American composer's, 'Duo for Flute and Piano,' at the recital hall.

If you're not familiar with Copland, chances are you can already hum several of his pieces. Copeland's Fanfare for The Common Man is often played during the Olympics, and the composer's Rodeo is heard on the ubiquitous, Beef, it's what's for dinner commercials.

How refreshing to have Patch cover the Staller Center performance of Brooklyn-born Aaron Copland's Duo, a late work with echoes of his masterpiece, Appalachian Spring. A Staller program featuring Copland's original, 13-instrument version of Appalachian Spring, his award-winning movie scores such as "The Red Pony", "Of Mice and Men" and "The Heiress", and his "Billy the Kid" ballet suite, would make for a great evening of music with an American accent. The compositions of this quintessentially American composer need to be heard more often in our concert halls.
