Performance:   Sonics:
Let’s say it out loud from the start. This SACD reissue based on the original mono and stereo tapes is a milestone. What a program! What audio magic! What artists! This is one of the greatest SACDs of all time that needs to be heard. The American composer, Aaron Copland, is on the piano for his concerto from 1926 with the New York Philharmonic, directed by Leonard Bernstein. “El Salon Mexico,” dating from 1936, with the Utah Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Maurice Abravanel, precedes the famous “Appalachian Spring,” under the direction of Antal Dorati, with the London Symphony Orchestra. And to finish this generous program, we are rewarded with all of the “Old American Songs,” dating from 1950-1952, with the baritone William Warfield and the Columbia Symphony, which the composer conducts. Here is probably one of the most precious tributes to Aaron Copland to be made available on record in a long time. It is, quite simply, a pure marvel…
