Composed for Copland's teacher Nadia Boulanger for her 1925 American tour, Symphony for Organ and Orchestra established Copland as a major composer. "He cultivated his own 'idea of the grandiose, of the dramatic and the tragic, which was expressed to a certain extent in the Organ Symphony… the deliberate Americanism and the grandiosity were characteristics that recurred in various guises and various combinations throughout his later works" (New Grove 4: 719). The recipient of this copy was Phillip Ramey, a composer and writer who was also one of Copland's closest friends.

Fine condition.
