Aaron Copland and Nadia Boulanger

 

“Myth credits every American town with two things: a 10-cent store and a Boulanger student.” – Ned Rorem

 

With a career spanning 70 years, Nadia Boulanger taught theory, composition, and ear training to more than 600 students.  In this special Live edition of Feminine Fusion, you’ll hear music from composers as diverse as Aaron Copland, Peggy Glanville-Hicks, Astor Piazzolla, and more.
