Copland Conducts Copland
Henry Fonda (narrator) Benny Goodman, Isaac Stern / London Symphony Orchestra, Columbia Symphony Orchestra, New Philharmonia Orchestra

[ Sony Classical / 20 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Friday 12 April 2024

This boxset includes Aaron Copland's complete own recordings for Columbia Masterworks from 1935 to 1976 on 19 CDs plus recordings of two of his works by Leonard Bernstein on one additional CD. Although Sony Classical has issued many of Aaron Copland's CBS/Columbia recordings on CD before, including a major 5-disc set in 2013, this new 20-disc collection marks the first all-inclusive compilation of Aaron Copland's authoritative interpretations with the composer's six early recordings for the first time on Sony Classical CD. Aaron Copland not only created some of the most original, influential, and appealing compositions in the history of American music. He also left posterity a body of recordings that illustrate exactly how he wanted these pieces to go - a priceless, new 20-CD legacy of authentic performances, the "heart of the composer's discography".

The boxset includes collaborations with Benny Goodman, Isaac Stern, the Juilliard String Quartet, William Warfield, Henry Fonda, and more

"The composer directs with unrivalled insight throughout. The remastering is done most skilfully, retaining the ambience of the originals, while achieving more refined detail." (Penguin Guide)
