Format: Audio CD
The third of the Copland Collection from Sony is much like the other two: Wonderful playing, orchestration, recording, and booklet. This is my favorite of the three of the CD sets though. Music is very 'Copland' like. The Red Pony is from the movie is an excellent suite. Dance Panels is the least known of the 4 ballets by Copland. But just like Appalachian Spring and Billy the Kid, it is very Copland, very exciting, and very good. Unlike the other three you may find on the 2nd CD set of this series, this is the entire ballet not just the suites. Down A Country Lane is now one of my favorite Copland works. So soothing, it can really paint the picture of a beautiful country road on a spring day. Music for a great city is actually from a movie (booklet tells all). Each of the four movements describes the big city just as we all have known it. All the other works are nothing to look down upon either. Most works are conducted by Copland with the London Symphony (he really knocked them into shape). A couple were conducted by Bernstein which are still up to standard. Great CD collection! Buy all three.

Most of the music is pretty well played, and the sound is good, but these works are mostly awful sounding serial music. If you're in to that stuff, than go for this.

SKYLINE is a fun track that's based on the premise of Big City Overload. And naturally it's immediately followed by the low-key introspective NIGHT THOUGHTS.

Consider Lenny Bernstein's main theme from his MASS. I'm talking about the tune that was done klezmer-style and chorale-style. When the chorale sings it, it contains a descending 4-note phrase. Followed by a descending 5-note phrase. Okay--now listen for a certain passage in NIGHT THOUGHTS that sounds similar to Bernstein's passage. The only basic difference is that both of Copland's phrases are 5-note phrases. And let me add that Copland's NIGHT THOUGHTS was written years before Bernstein's MASS.

Copland, LOVE the music, always have.
Saw the Copland collection and bought it.
BUT
I like to listen to the music while on the computer and I load ALL my albums into my laptop and desktop.
Imagine my surprise when I found you can't do it. Not completely. It seems that one disc will overwrite the other and even though there are song titles on the disc and brochure that comes with it all you get when you do load to the computer are TRACKS- 2,3,4 etc. NO titles of songs, just tracks.

So You can't load Appalachian spring into your computer and then load Billy the Kid because one will overwrite the other and leave you with unnamed tracks for your time. In this day and age you would think that this would not be a magic trick to get the CDs right so this doesn't happen, in fact I have never had this happen before and my experience with the Copland Collections album is that THEY BOTH ARE DOING IT! Years 1936-1048 and then 1948-1971.

Great music but save yourself the frustration and know now you will not be able to load the entire albums into your laptop or PC because after a couple of hours of trying every trick I could think of ... I give up.
