Copland, Prokofiev, Various Classical Composers

In the recent annals of classical music collections for parents of young children, almost all releases have been aimed at the developing brain. The music's largely been mellow, even when specifically oriented towards playtime. Good Music for Little Guys shares the classical affiliations, but it veers overtly and unabashedly towards play. The music is bright and active, from Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" to Copland's "Hoe Down," with lesser-known pieces clocking in with quick tempos. What the more obviously robust music does well is aid in play, with march rhythms that can have kids participating in a mock parade and well-lit orchestrations that can incite impromptu dancing. The recordings are drawn from Delos Records' many releases, and each is well produced and exemplary. --Andrew Bartlett


Copland: The Music of America

Copland: The Music of America Lowest new price: $7.89

Model: 2023060

When it comes to light, folk-flavored listening, the music of Aaron Copland is some of the best and most popular. When it comes to crowd-pleasing conducting, Erich Kunzel is one of the great successes. This album contains most of Copland's essential compositions, in all or part: "Fanfare for the Common Man," four movements from "Rodeo," "Quiet City," "Billy the Kid," and "Appalachian Spring." All are performed in fine form; it would be nice to have all of "Rodeo," but this is otherwise all the Copland that most folks will need, and in one package. --Sarah Bryan Miller

Rainbow Body / Blue Cathedral / Symphony 1 / Appalachian Spring Suite

Rainbow Body / Blue Cathedral / Symphony 1 / Appalachian Spring Suite Lowest new price: $11.17
Lowest used price: $5.43
Model: 2023319

lanking two major works from an earlier generation of American composers are two shorter ones by contemporaries whose command of orchestral textures and hues make for a stimulating program. Christopher Theofanidis' Rainbow Body opens quietly, and builds to a shattering brass-and-percussion-led close, fully exploiting the rich colors of Atlanta's crack orchestra. Jennifer Higdon's Blue Cathedral, which closes the disc, is a finely textured exploration that, in her words, represents an imaginary journey "through a glass cathedral in the sky." It has a soaring quality that captivates, and while not as melodic as Theofanidis' piece, is as compelling in its own way. Spano excels in the Barber and Copland works too; the Barber Symphony No. 1, played with coiled energy, the Copland Suite from Appalachian Spring, full of atmosphere and momentum. Both are among the best available. This brilliantly engineered disc is a winner. --Dan Davis

Bernstein Century II: Copland - Music for the Theatre and other works by Leonard Bernstein

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This important Copland collection includes at least two indispensable items. Copland was an incomparable player of his own music, and his performance of the Piano Concerto has more bounce and jazz in it than any other I've heard. And Connotations, one of Copland's late, adventurous works, is still very seldom heard. Just because it doesn't sound like Appalachian Spring doesn't mean it isn't great Copland. Music for the Theatre is another under-appreciated work. Of course, Bernstein's conducting in all this music is completely sympathetic. The version of El Sálon México is Leonard Bernstein's brash 1951 mono recording, never on CD before. --Leslie Gerber
