In this special bonus episode of See the Music recorded live in the David H. Koch Theater, Resident Conductor Daniel Capps briefly surveys the history and unique musical qualities of Aaron Copland’s Rodeo, which provides the score for Justin Peck’s Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes. Capps and the NYCB Orchestra demonstrate how Copland uses familiar folk songs and rhythmic invention to convey a distinct Americanness, achieving for the piece a place in the “very fabric of American identity.” (13:13)
