Notes & Reviews:

The Legacy of Aaron Copland: Emblems is the second album featured in the series of concert band recordings honoring the lives and music of individuals who have made significant contributions to the band repertoire and to music education. The Legacy of Aaron Copland: Emblems features some of his greatest compositions. Special guest, Charles Osgood, anchor and writer of CBS Sunday Mornings, appears as a narrator on "Preamble for a Solemn Occasion" and "Lincoln Portrait." This album also features Copland's famous "Variations on a Shaker Hymn," and "An Outdoor Adventure," among many other Copland classics.



Reviews

Excellent Copland recording!
No one knows how to make American music sound "American" as well as the US Army Field Band! This CD is wonderful! The clarinet solo in "Variations on a Shaker Melody" opens the recording with clarity and simplicity through a warm and crisp tone. The brass fanfares live up to expectations. Charles Osgood's commanding voice is perfect for the narration of "Lincoln Portrait." I wholeheartedly recommend this CD if you love Copland or truly American-inspired music.
