As with other reviewers I agree this is a must to own. Like reviewer SR I bought this on the recommendation on Radio 3's Building a Library programme which reviewed the recordings of Appalachian Spring and I am very happy with the interpretation that Copland brings to the piece. In listening, I prefer this to the orchestral version. Finally, all pieces are conducted by the composer and track (18) of Disc 2, "Copland Rehearses Appalachian Spring" is very worthy of its inclusion in the set.
