Happy is the composer who has an advocate as passionate and talented as Leonard Bernstein. These Copland performances have been the preferred versions since they were first issued--better even than the composer's own, later recordings. Originally they were spread over two discs, but thanks to the extended playing time of the compact disc, you can now get all three great Copland ballets together, along with the ever popular Fanfare for the Common Man. Bernstein brings to this music the right sharpness of rhythm but also a typically open-hearted warmth. He coaxes a virtuoso response from the New York Philharmonic, which knows this music as well (or better) than anyone. Self- recommending. --David Hurwitz

The Berlin Philharmonic never has had much opportunity to play Ravel, which is a pity because under Pierre Boulez they do it extremely well. Under their current music director, Claudio Abbado, the orchestra more often than not sounds positively comatose. How gratifying then, that with a dynamic conductor and music that's fun to play, they rouse themselves to sound like the world-class ensemble they really can be when they're not resting on their laurels. Boléro is really smashing, with a knockout final cadence, and the solo players in all of these works cover themselves with glory. This is a great Ravel disc. --David Hurwitz

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

Recorded live at the Centro de Acci¢n Social por la M£sica, Sala Sim¢n Bol¡var, January 2008. An album everyone has been waiting for! Gustavo Dudamel and the SBYOV have stunned audiences worldwide with their explosive Latin-American showpieces. Now they deliver this repertoire on record, from a searing live concert in Caracas earlier this year. No other conductor or orchestra in the world could deliver a recording like this. Passion and excitement are guaranteed! "It's all about dance, about rhythm," says Dudamel, and his orchestra responds in kind, swaying and bending to the music, conveying utter joy and excitement in the music of their Southern hemisphere. The recording juxtaposes contrasting showpieces such as the Stravinsky-esque rhythmic drive of Revueltas's Sensemaya, the expansive lusciousness of Danz¢n no. 2 by Arturo Marquez and the vibrant ballet suite Estancia by Ginastera. The concert concludes with a sizzling performance of Mambo from Bernstein's West Side Story. The dynamic cover art displays the moment when the musicians are revealed dressed in their national colors - now a well known signature of the SBYOV, as is the blistering energy and exuberance with which they perform these pieces.

Gustavo Dudamel, the still-not-30 Venezuelan conductor is living up to his hype. After a couple of remarkably successful recordings of music by Mahler and Beethoven, he and his Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela now turn their attention to music of Latin America (with a bow to Leonard Bernstein’s Mambo from West Side Story) and the result is absolutely joyful. The emphasis, as you might guess, is on dance and rhythm, although there are some introspective moments as well. Revueltas' angular, somewhat sinister "Sensemayá" fascinates, while Estevez' "Mediodia en el Liano" is like a poem to Venezuelan nature. "Danzon no. 2" begins in a relaxed, reflective manner, but composer Arturo Marquez surprises with growing, passionate dance rhythms. This isn’t a "dance party" CD, it's a collection of infectious, exciting, energetic pieces that happen to be dances as well. Dudamel’s SBYO obviously love this music and offer it up in sizzling performances. Some of this music was written for festivals, and you can feel the enthusiasm. Bernstein's "Mambo," will, in fact, make you want to mambo – you can practically see the orchestra members dancing. In short, this recording is unique and vastly entertaining. -- Robert Levine

Stravinsky Conducts Stravinsky: Petrushka / Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring)

Stravinsky Conducts Stravinsky: Petrushka / Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring) Lowest new price: $8.52
Lowest used price: $1.99

Whatever the limitations of Stravinsky's baton technique, no one else on disc conjures the same bustling excitement at the outset of Petrouchka. Overlapping, polyrhythmic textures in Petrouchka and in Le Sacre du Printemps come off with Mozartian lucidity, Mendelssonian lightness, and, well, Stravinsky-esque rhythmic exactitude (notwithstanding a few hesitant entrances). The clarity partly stems from the composer's use of his leaner revised scores, helped by close-up, analytical mike work by CBS. There are, of course, slicker, more sonically opulent versions of these 20th century landmarks. And then there are Stravinsky's. --Jed Distler
