Aaron Copland can be and should be considered the father of American concert music. He decisively created a style of music that needed to be made as we were reaching maturity as a country. This collection of his orchestral works gives a great outline of the music that makes Copland such a innovative composer.
I personally find that the most interesting part of this collection is the inclusion of rehearsal audio from the same recording of Appalachian Spring that appears on the CD. This offers a unique opportunity to hear what Copland's vision of his music was. I am one who personally believes that no performance of a concert orchestral piece can be heard as it was meant to be unless the composer is leading the ensemble. By hearing Copland conducting a rehearsal of one of his masterworks, the listener is given a greater appreciation for exactly what Copland's vision was for his own music.
A definite must have for lovers of the young tradition of American Music.

A great treat! March 6 2001
By Josef Krebs - Published on Amazon.com
Here we have not only the original, complete chamber arrangement of Appalachian Spring in a pretty fine performance by Copland, but we get a neat 17 minutes of Copland rehearsing it, which is pretty cool for the Copland fan. Plus Nonet for Strings, well performed, which is a rare thing these days. The other disk is pretty average - Copland wasn't much of a conductor, but the chamber Appalachian and Nonet make up for it. Cheap and unique. A must have for the Copland fan.

The composer as conductor is unusurpassed March 29 2001
By "pspa" - Published on Amazon.com
This is a reissue of recordings conducted by Copland himself that are totally definitive and, to my mind, superior to the recordings by Bernstein that are generally considered to be the best. The composer has a broader, grander vision of these works, taking them at a slower and more majestic pace than Bernstein and others. In his hands this is great classical music, not just upscale cowboy music. The sound quality is phenomenal for the most part as well, the engineers must have performed miracles because the recordings with the LSO sound better than almost any modern digital recording. Highly recommended.

Copland's Point of View Nov. 18 2010
By Darryl E. Crone - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It is not very often one is able to hear a legendary musician conduct his own creations! AND to also hear the rehearsal! What an education to hear how Copland takes the typical orchestral approach and molds it to fit his music - clean, simple, perfect. Thanks to those who had the foresight to record these moments - the main reason I purchased the CD.
Listen and learn!

Wide Open Spaces March 21 2008

Good recording of an identifiably "American" composer. Whether you believe that his "serious" compositions should out-weigh public attention (and recognition) of his ballet scores is just a matter of taste and exposure. I recommend reading any one of several good biographies available to more fully appreciate his scope and talent. Then check out as many recordings as possible.
