    I shall go with this version.
    This is a good SS given my current wish to listen to more American music, so I am looking forward to trying this

    I have heard many of Copland's works, but surprisingly, I have not previously encountered this one. When I saw this thread, I immediately bought a download, and I found that it was well worth the effort and cost of acquiring a copy of this piece (and the others that came with it). I listened to Jonathan Scott/BBC Philharmonic/John Wilson. It is quite interesting, and I am glad I finally discovered it. (Check out the "Short Symphony" as well - you won't be disappointed.)

    There is a lot more to Copland than most people realize; I strongly recommend exploring beyond Appalachian Spring and Rodeo.

    That's why this kind of topics by realdealblues is so nice.
