Starting in the Fall each year and throughout the Holidays this is my favorite. Snow falling and a wood fire in the fireplace goes so well.

I wish Pandora would list the orchestra, conductor, label and other information related to the performance. This is key information for classical music listeners.

My brothers high school marching band performed this for one whole school year. Won awards for every show, even sweepstakes for entire show. Brings tears to my eyes every time...

jon.d.albrig h t , that is RELLY interesting! Seriously! Even though this piece is practically 25 minutes, it is 25 minutes of good quality, beautiful music! Thanks, Copland!

Fun fact: Copland didn't have a title for this when he wrote it. The title was suggested by the ballet choreographe r for whom it was written.

Appalachian Spring sounds light and lilting, but it's tough to play.

I wonder how many people drive through the Appalachian Mountains with this piece on? How beautiful that would be.

I have loved this since I first heard it in music class in 3rd grade. God bless Mrs. Weir for introducing it! It takes my breath away.

This song is like a blessing. Even if I am running late and get some place, I don't stop my car until it is over. I know little about music, but it brings tears to my eyes.

Turning this song into a clarinet concerto IS THE WORST IDEA EVER.

Listening to this song and doing nothing else is pretty cool.

So expressive! I love Aaron Copland. Others just as good are Leonard Bernstein and Sergey Prokofiev.
