Life’s Playlist….. Simple Gifts from Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring

As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, I always think of this section of Aaron Copland’s masterpiece “Appalachian Spring” the section of this symphony is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard.

As the music builds towards it greatest crescendo, I “feel” the joys of Thanksgiving, the simple pleasures and the simple gifts.

One of my favorite Thanksgiving melodies is this beautiful suite from the larger symphonic piece….. Appalachian Spring.
