Appalachian Spring Suite (piano)

One such work—arguably his greatest—was the score for the ballet Appalachian Springwhich became one of the most recognizable and beloved pieces of American music ever written almost immediately following its world premiere on this day in The score scote Appalachian Spring was commissioned in to accompany a ballet being choreographed by a young Martha Graham.

It is, as the saying goes, a natural. Though written expressly for the ballet and for only 13 instrumentalists—a limitation dictated by the size of the orchestra pit at the Library of Congress— Appalachian Spring was soon adapted into an orchestral suite, which is the form in which it became widely popular.
