In 1942 Copland composed Fanfare for the Common Man to support America’s effort during World War II. He settled on this title because, as he put it, “It was the common man, after all, who was doing all the dirty work in the war and the army.” He later added, “He deserved a fanfare.” Today, the title could just as easily apply to the healthcare workers and other essential frontline workers who have helped us through the COVID-19 pandemic.
This newly recorded performance was conducted by David Robertson in January 2021 at St. Bartholomew’s Church.
