Classical music inspired by the Jazz Age
Another beautifully introspective piano tune from Copland, this time in the form of his Four Piano Blues, published in 1949. It's calming piano music at its best, coloured by the occasional sultry jazz chord or a hint of a bluesy melody - with a quirky bouncing finale to round off the 8 minute piece.
