BTW, can't remember if I've ever shared this story here before, but many years ago a brilliant composer friend, Joseph Marcello, and I went to a concert which began with the Copland Fanfare. Almost immediately, alas, it became apparent that all the orchestra's rehearsal time must have been taken up by the visiting concerto soloist, because instead of those beautiful brass sonorities we heard many a clinker and clam. I looked over to Joe with his pen in hand, and saw that just above where the program booklet listed "Aaron Copland's Fanfare For the Common Man," he was writing, "Arnold Schoenberg's Arrangement Of"...

... look on the bright side: he could have been writing "Arnold Schwarzenegger's Arrangement of ..." smile

5 years ago c8 suggested that Aaron Copland could be too schmaltzy ... and received a lot of stick for this. For me, this Williams/BP choral recording comes closest to meeting that description! I've played the Green Album (1991) only a couple of times and it has yet to earn its place in my collection ... frown

I have Aaron Copland's own 1959 recording (with BPO) - no choir - this is far more enjoyable smile
