HASH(0x9a5ed57c) out of 5 stars SANDBURG ALONE WORTH THE PRICE Aug. 16 2011
By gandalfcmk - Published on Amazon.com

A wonderful set for those who love Copland's music. Not a good "trainer" CD, however (there are others better for a first introduction): this collection is aimed at the hard-core Copland enthusiast. However. Carl Sandburg's narration of A Lincoln Portrait alone is worth the price of admission. Sandburg is not a "professional" reader, but his performance is sincere and heartfelt. For some of us, this is the best recording of ALP ever made, particularly since Sandburg holds such a cherished place in the Lincoln chronicle. Buy and enjoy.

HASH(0x9a5ed7a4) out of 5 stars Terrific vocal talents for Copland's music Aug. 7 2002
By Neal Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
This second Copland collection focuses on unique talents of veteran performers.
William Warfield lends his voice and his interpretations of Copland's Old American Songs, and he sings them as they were meant to be, not as classical diletantes felt they should be. You have authenticity here.
Martha Lipton likewise contributes an older world charm and charisma to Copland's settings for Emily Dickenson's words.
Carl Sandberg's resonant reading of his own words is worth the full price of this set.
And then the inimitable Oscar Levant's piano treatment of the orchestral pieces...Levant had a wry touch to his interpretations that gave him a voice all his own.
There's much more here, quite a bit that's less than familiar and therefore increases one's familiarity with Copland.

HASH(0x9a5ed888) out of 5 stars finally sandburg's lincoln portrait Aug. 16 2001
By Captain Nemo - Published on Amazon.com
For all those like myself who have waited a decade for "A Lincoln Portrait" with Carl Sandburg's narration on CD, here it is finally! Sandburg's heartfelt reading of Lincoln's words is easily the most inspired and inspiring of the legions of others whose voices have been recorded. The orchestration by Kostelanetz also vastly surpasses others. Compare Henry Fonda's reading for example to see a poorly mixed tape where the narrator's voice is overwhelmed by the orchestra.

Copland is one of my favorite composers and this three volume set is a great addition. This CD has some pieces that I have never--or rarely heard. As a result, it is a great addition to my collection.

HASH(0x9a5edf6c) out of 5 stars Don't waste your money June 5 2010
By P. R. Proud - Published on Amazon.com

I can't understand why this cd is in this 3 vol set. It is just a duplicate of material in the other cd's except "Lincoln Portrait" and even that piece is the poorest that I have heard. So forget this, it isn't worth the money.
