Programme Note  
Copland enjoyed the challenge of composing for young performers. Life Magazine commissioned a piano piece and featured it in a 1962 issue of the magazine with photographs and a homespun article that explained, "Copland's Down a Country Lane fills a musical gap: It is among the few modern pieces specially written for young piano students by a major composer." Copland was quoted: "Even third-year students will have to practice before trying it in public."

-Vivian Perlis, 1998
