Hawkes Pocket Scores edition, inscribed by Aaron Copland, "Aaron Copland / 1983"

"Throughout his career, Copland was the guiding light of American music. Very few have served their art so unstintingly. Once, when speaking of Copland's music, Leonard Bernstein exclaimed, 'It's the best we've got, you know!' But Copland was more than 'the best we've got'—he touched greatness in many forms. A healthy amount of his invariably highly finished output will survive, representing his nation, more completely than that of any other composer" (Dubal, Essential Canon of Classical Music, 615).

Fine condition.
