The ballets "Appalachian Spring" (1944) and "Billy the Kid" (1938) are considered to be key works of their day. Both have folkloric traits, which brought Copland the reputation of having a penchant for borrowed melodies. In reality, the well-known tunes are very subtly treated and modified, and are incorporated into large-scale, defined forms. Now and again, melodic echoes of Mahler’s music or highly rhythmic exposed passages reminiscent of Stravinsky flash through.
