5.0 out of 5 stars just about ideal 18 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Consider the young Bernstein's compositional oeuvre, his brilliance as a conductor, and the fact of a student-days acquaintanceship with Copland, and you won't be surprised to find that these interpretations are just about spot-on. The orchestra responds superbly, and this delicious music is so well recorded that I found the 1960 sound almost as impressive as the excellent new RLPO Rachmaninov disc that had just come out of my player.

4.0 out of 5 stars american classic 28 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
I initially bought this cd for appalachian spring which is a fantastic piece i heard randomly, it's relaxing and then uplifting in a way that makes you want to listen again.
I thought from the titles that rodeo and billy the kid would be western style and not in keeping with the rest of the cd. while fun pieces they're not too jovial and fit quite well.

i've tried to write this review as best i can, but it's the first classical cd i've bought. so buy this if you want someone with a large punk/metal/ska collection to open their ears

This recording is from 1960 and not DDD as indicated but ADD. The recording and musicality is otherwise very good. The Fanfare is not the original brass and percussion version, but an orchestral version.

This is exactly what I wanted - a compilation of my favorite Copland compositions, with excellent sound quality. I greatly enjoy listening to it on long car journeys.
