James Horner may have taken inspiration from this to compose the main theme for Apollo 13. Listen to both, judge for yourself.

Written in 1942 following the attack at Pearl Harbor at the request of Eugene Goossens of the Cincinatti Symphony Orchestra, to be played before each orchestral concert. I used to hear it on a local radio station in Louisiana each morning. It always motivated me to get up and get going.

Quintessenti a l 20th century "American" sound. Copeland invented it--all American composers who've followed have been influenced.

How ironic...I just heard about this song today and am now hearing it for the first time. What a difficult and amazing piece to play!

This reminds me of the soldiers serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. The horns represent their nobility, justice, perseverance , and the percussion is the booming pride of having these people serving our country. These common men are common heroes that I simply cannot take for granted.

Reminds me of the Superman theme. Similar elements in the horn section. I love that this is the Fanfare for the Common Man.

The brass harmonizatio n in this piece is really amazing... The performers do an amazing job with this piece, and it sends chills down my spine when I hear it.
