Millions in America and throughout the world know Aaron Copland as the composer who best defined the sound of America in the classical music world for much of the 20th century, via "Fanfare For The Common Man", "Appalachian Spring", and his two Old West ballets "Billy The Kid" and "Rodeo", to name just a few. But as this 1989 EMI recording featuring the New York Chamber Symphony under Gerard Schwarz makes clear, Copland's ability to form a uniquely American sound stretched in all directions.

Indeed, this recording is built around how Copland integrated jazz influences into his sound, as he later would integrate folk influences into his better-known pieces. There's the infectious 1947 Clarinet Concerto (composed for the legendary Benny Goodman, who premiered it in Boston in 1950). There's "Quiet City", a short work for English horn, solo trumpet, and strings whose atmosphere is redolent of Copland's native Brooklyn. And the jazz influences are made even clearer in "Music For The Theatre" (a work from 1925) and the 1959 orchestral suite "Dance Panels", originally composed for Jerome Robbins (of "West Side Story" fame).

In another sense, this is a homecoming for Schwarz himself. A native of New York City, his conducting career includes highly successful music directorships with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, and here with the NYCSO. He had also been mentored in conducting while a member of the trumpet section of the New York Philharmonic in the late 1960s under Leonard Bernstein's tutelage.
