There is no comparison between this album and Bernstein's recordings of the same music. Bernstein is more rhythmically pointed and "punchier". When those cowboys dance, Bernstein makes it exuberant! Bernstein is also much more evocative in "Billy the Kid". Copland once said that Bernstein was the best conductor of his music, and this recording does not alter that fact.

Having said that, there is some music here that Bernstein did not see fit to include in the suites he recorded, and I enjoy hearing that music. Additionally, it's nice to hear these smoother, more self-conciously pretty performances every once in a while. You will hear some orchestral details here that are easy to miss in Bernstein's more lively renditions. I marvel at how beautifully this orchestra plays, and at how good it sounds on record!

This is available very inexpensively used, and it makes a nice second version of these pieces, assuming that the unsurpassed Berstein recordings are already on your shelf.

I have to agree with Jeff. The Bernstein is the best recording ever and it will never be surpassed. The Zinman is a good runner-up, however, especially with Baltimore's solid brass playing and the Argo label's spectacularly recorded bass drum! An extra added bonus is the inclusion of music you normally don't hear in recordings of Rodeo and Billy the Kid.

Format: Audio CD
The "American Sound" of classical music in the 20th century was defined by many great composers: Charles Ives; William Schuman; Samuel Barber; George Gershwin, and many more. And at the head of them all is the so-called "dean" of American composers, namely Aaron Copland. He managed this by utilizing folk or folkloric material into a style uniquely rooted in the American soil, whether it be in the quiet spaces of the Appalachians in Pennsylvania (his 1943 ballet "Appalachian Spring"), small-town USA (as was the case for his score for the 1940 film version of Thornton Wilder's play "Our Town"), or for John Steinbeck (his score for the 1938 film "The Red Pony"). Copland, in short, helped to define what American classical music would mean for the world. This is especially the case on this 1993 recording of four of Copland's most intriguing pieces by David Zinman and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

The two big pieces here are the absolute complete scores Copland wrote for two ballets set in the wide-open spaces of the West, "Billy The Kid" and "Rodeo". Both works had been known already in their forms as orchestral suites, especially in Leonard Bernstein's justly famous 1961 recordings with his New York Philharmonic; but it wasn't until Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra recorded them for EMI in 1985 that people heard the ballet scores in their unabridged form. Zinman and his orchestra take Slatkin's approach and give renditions of those scores that rank right up there with the Slatkin/St. Louis versions. And in every note, the look, the feel, and the textures of the Old West comes through, both in audio terms and in the mind of the listener.

But the two works sandwiched between those two scores aren't exactly small potatoes either.
