I had to take that video down, disabled by request.

As for his views: Which melodic sequence indicates a political view? Which bars contain a dissertation on Marx? Did I list this as KASS political views of the day? NO! I said Musical Gems! And "Hoedown" is a gem to me. Smiling

Besides, "Beef. It's what's for dinner."

Are you aware of Copland's political views, and the fact that Rodeo and many of his most popular works were intended as Americanizations of the Soviet/Socialist Realism that was then dominating the artistic culture of the USSR?

8:58 PM EDT: did you delete the Copland? It seems to have disappeard in the interval that I posted my comment.
