Tribute to celebrate Copland's life and work

The world premiere performance of Aaron Copland's "Prelude" for violin, cello and piano will highlight a tribute to the composer by the Chamber Music Society at Yale on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m. in Morse Recital Hall of Sprague Memorial Hall, 470 College St.

The host for the evening will be Vivian Perlis, who was Copland's biographer and directs Yale's Oral History, American Music project. She will provide colorful commentary on Copland's life and work, including filmed interviews with the composer.

Robert Blocker, dean of the School of Music, will peform the piece with Erick Friedman, professor of violin, and Sophie Shao, cellist. Duo pianists Edward and Anne Louise-Turgeon will present Copland's "Music for the Theater," arranged by the composer for two pianos. To round out the program, the Yale Brass Ensemble, directed by Thompson Hanks, will perform two fanfares -- including "Fanfare for the Common Man" -- and violinist Wendy Sharp and pianist Melvin Chen, two School of Music faculty members, will play Copland's Violin Sonata.
