If I had to name my choice of the greatest piece of classical music composed by an American, it would probably be Aaron Copland's (1900-1990) "Appalachian Spring."  I was going to post one or two excerpts that I find especially lovely, but the whole piece is so beautiful that I decided it shouldn't be cut.  Here is a very nice performance by an Australian youth orchestra.
