Classical music CD release from Leonard Slatkin, Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra with the album Aaron Copland: Billy the Kid, Rodeo. Released on the label EMI Records. Classical music CD. This hard to find pre-owned music CD is fully guaranteed.
Leonard Slatkin, who has done such outstanding service for American music, upholds the Copland tradition with potent, sympathetically argued accounts of the big ballets. The performances by the Saint Louis Symphony could hardly be bettered, and the recordings stand out for their solid sound as well. Slatkin does both Billy the Kid and Rodeo in full, restoring some delightful music in both scores that is missed when only the suites are presented. In Rodeo, for example, it comes as a delicious surprise to hear the Saloon-piano interlude before the "Saturday Night Waltz"--and Slatkin insists on an out-of-tune upright--just the right touch. These are idiomatic, persuasive accounts, thrilling in their buildups and potent in their climaxes. Even Appalachian Spring is done in full, though in its version for full orchestra. The treatment here is gentle, and while Slatkin generates less voltage than Bernstein, his reading has nobility and an engaging warmth. The recordings were made at a rather low level, but have a wonderful ambience and extraordinary dynamic range. Unfortunately, the individual scenes of both Billy the Kid and Appalachian Spring are not separately banded. --Ted Libbey
I had played the copy I first bought years ago so many times that I had to turn the volume right up to appreciate it!
By far the most arresting version of the complete ballet music from 'Billy the Kid', while the performance of 'Rodeo' is guaranteed to blow your socks off.
One of my most treasured possessions.
The only drawback is that the sound quality in Copland's own rendition of 'Billy the Kid' with the LSO is breathtaking and slightly superior to that of Slatkin.
