In this episode, learn about the four sections of the orchestra; why a composer chooses specific instruments; and about German composer Ludwig van Beethoven and American composer Aaron Copland. Why did Beethoven choose the strings section to express the humanity in Symphony No. 7? What drew Copland to choose the brass and percussion sections for his Fanfare for the Common Man?
