Release Date: Sunday 1 June 2008

The music of Aaron Copland (1900-1990) is almost every music-lover's introduction to what might be called American 'classical' music. Either through the picture postcard that is El Salón Mexico or the fresh-faced innocence of the ballet Appalachian Spring, Copland is able to capture in sound the wide open spaces, the melodic freshness and rhythmic vitality that, to most European ears, has come to epitomise American music.
