AARON COPLAND (1900-1990): Symphony No. 1, Short Symphony, Dance Symphony.
Catalogue Number: 01K071
Description: A very attractive coupling of Copland's early "symphonies" - a 1928 arrangement of his 1923 symphony for organ and orchestra; the 1933 chamber-scale work notable for its complex, irregular rhythms; and the 1929 construction from the 1925 vampire ballet Grohg. Not symphonies in the form and style of the Third, but full of signposts indicating the "American", "wide-open spaces" style of the 1940s... Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra; Marin Alsop.
