Programme Note

Copland joked about "stealing from the best sources — mostly myself!" When he could not complete his Symphonic Ode in time for an RCA Victor competition, he "stole" three dances from the early ballet score, Grohg, and submitted them as the Dance Symphony in time for the deadline.

-Vivian Perlis, 1998
