Copland left New York in 1921 to study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. He lived in the Montparnasse area of the city, among a large number of expatriate American writers, including Hemingway, and also travelled more widely in Europe, attending concerts and meeting composers. Donald Macleod explores Copland's experience of Paris, the outlook it gave him, and the pieces he worked on there.
