Boosey & Hawkes

This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.

Programme Note

The city of Grand Rapids, Michigan commissioned Copland to write a fanfare marking the dedication of a large red Alexander Calder stabile entitled La Grande Vitesse. The sculpture was the first work of art in American history to be jointly commissioned and financed by federal and private funds. Copland revised the work in 1975, prompted by the city's installation of a rooftop Calder painting close to the sculpture.

-Vivian Perlis, 1998
