Ballet for Martha
Making Appalachian Spring
Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan
This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of the collaboration of three
renowned artists, choreographer Martha Graham, composer Aaron Copland, and
sculptor Isamu Noguchi, that lead to the creation of Appalachian Spring.
Beginning with the project's inception through the score’s composition, Martha’s
intense rehearsal process, and the work's triumphant debut at the Library of
Congress, Ballet for Martha tells a compelling story about this seminal
work of American art. The book also includes biographical information on
the three artists and a bibliography for further reading. Book, 48 pages.
