“Hoe Down” from Rodeo

Aaron Copland (1900–1990) extracted a mini-suite from his ballet score Rodeo, choreographed by Agnes de Mille, to be used specifically for concert performance. The fourth episode, “Hoe Down,” from Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo has been superbly transcribed for band by Mark Rogers, Director of Publications for Southern Music Company. A square dance tune called “Bonyparte” provides the principal theme of Hoe Down. (Source: published score)
