If your not download-averse (and at $6.99 this is truly a steal)

...and no I do not know the release date of the physical CD yet, sorry.

Cheers, enjoy!

I wouldn't normally be so self-serving, but...

The album is NO. 1 on the Classicsonline site.

I'm personally thrilled...see film music win out cool

The mp3's are done at 320 kps with no DRM attached to muck them up. If you're even remotely interested in these scores, you'd be crazy to pass on this.

This is a great release! It's inconceivable to me that it's taken this long to hear these magnificent scores! (I suppose Copland didn't show much interest in releasing this music past what he'd done in suite form.) The performances are heartfelt and spirited, and it sounds terrific. Of the two, I prefer "Our Town," but they're both wonderful.

I realized, listening to this, that I've never seen either film (though I am very familiar with the source material for both). I should remedy that.

I am EXTREMELY interested in these two scores. There's not another title anywhere on this blog that's even remotely as exciting for me in it's anticipation.....of the actual cd. I'm sure a lot of people love to download music, and perhaps it is 'a steal' at the price someone quoted above.
However I think there's also a huge segment of people who want the actual cd, in their hands and on their shelf - and who don't want to download their music. After all this time of pre-production, production, and tantalizing tidbits of news of the immanent release of the magnificinent Copland scores...we get the news: 'It's here!'
Only to find that 'it' = download only. The actual cd? Who knows when. Filmscore Monthly will likely have to have a 4th segment added to it's messageboard: Downloadable music only.
For this truly special music release, I'll wait some more.

I think if people are anxious for the CD they should contact Naxos and tell them. Its like any other consumer/company relationship. Couldn't hurt.

Just downloaded this yesterday. Very impressive. Great to have this music after all these years.

I noticed that the total running time is something like 82 minutes. Any idea how that's going to be handled for the actual CD, which can only hold 80 minutes?

It has been explained in at least two other threads that a couple of cues will be lost so it can fit onto one CD. I'm sure the search engine can find this.

Of course, as I've said multiple times, it CAN fit on one CD. Nothing HAS to be cut.

BIS has done it, so can Naxos, if they wanted to.

TerraEpon, is it not true that many CD players cannot play CDs that long (and, in fact, that they often start objecting around the 78 minute mark)? A few of the CD producers here have said as much, including Lukas. Perhaps this information is outdated, and most players around today are more sophisticated. I don't know.

Well, I did a little research, and it appears that a CD cannot exceed 79.8 minutes in order to be officially Red Book compliant (Red Book being the standard developed by Phillips that theoretically keeps the CD format unified -- as long as a CD does not violate the Red Book standards, it should play in all CD players, and vice versa). This does not mean, as you point out Terra, that it is not technically possible, and labels violate Red Book from time to time for various reasons, but they do this at the risk of compatibility.

I believe Lukas has explained before that once you get beyond a certain length, the CD manufacturing plant will not warranty defects. If you press 3,000 copies of a 75-minute CD and some or all of the discs have problems then it's the plant's fault and they have to replace the defective CDs; but if you press 3,000 81-minute CDs, then you're left holding the bag if there are defects or people start complaining that their particular player won't play the last three tracks.

That's right, Jeff! I'm glad you have a better memory than me. Well, actually, I'm not glad about that. I'm just relieved somebody remembered.

It's great finally having these scores. To those who downloaded them: do you notice any balance issues with Of Mice and Men? There seems to be a left channel emphasis (left channel louder than right). It seems like violins and brass are both on the left. Maybe that's how the orchestra was set but it's a bit odd.

Superb scores as good as anything Copland wrote for the concert hall.

I've noticed that Naxos doesn't make the download available, classiconline has pulled it off, and it has disappeared. Does this have something to do with the Copland estate? Will there be a Naxos release in the US?

Is this being released on CD?

I thought it was supposed to be released on disc late 2010, but I could be wrong.

The downloads are gone? frown

It was all pulled back. Perhaps Mr. Todd can shed some light on this or anyone else.
