This is all the best works of copland in 2 cds for only 11.98! It starts out with somewhat more obscured peice called Danzo Cubano (you can geuss what that means). This if a very fun piece, but the real enjoyment starts with his 2 most famous ballets, Billy the Kid and Appalachian spring. In Billy the kid you can hear the sounds of cowboys and the old west and the open prarie,its a joy to listen to. And almost everyone knows appalchian spring, and If you havent get yourslef this recording.It puts you in such a good mood after you hear it, with its great joyfulness and celabration of life. Then comes Rodeo. Another old west peice thats probably even more convincing than Billy the Kid. The hoe-down is a kick! Then el salon mexico, another great piece. After that are two more lesser know pieces, The Red Pony suite and the Dance symphony. They are no less fun to listen to than the rest of the pieces on this cd. So get it.All the most tuneful compositions of the most tuneful composer of the 20th century for only 11.98!
