Keeping Score - Copland. SFSO/Tilson Thomas [DVD]

Album Summary

>Copland, Aaron : Appalachian Spring
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In this DVD, Michael Tilson Thomas explores Copland's break from the imported, much imitated music of Dvorak and Mahler, and the startling development of his American voice. In visits to the neighborhoods of Copland's youth, we absorb the influences - Yiddish folk, music, African-American jazz, the dissonant clang of city streets, the depression-era politics - that combined to create Copland's new musical language. "This ambitious project would not amount to much if it did not have the right communicator directing things. Mr. Thomas is that person..." -The New York Times
