In Reply to: RE: My Poor Wallet: Copland's Symphony #3 w/Slatkin and the Detroit Released posted by email@example.com on June 09, 2017 at 07:29:53
. . . recordings with the DSO (fantastic sound quality BTW!) and his fair-to-middlin' efforts with his Lyon orchestra (although I haven't heard the most recent volumes in his Ravel series). I just wish that the latest titles in the DSO Copland series were available in multi-channel, as volume 1 was (via blu-ray).
For the Copland Third Symphony, here are a couple of others to consider:
The 24/96 download of the latter (with its Plangent processing) is one of the most amazing mono recordings I've heard, and it's now going for 30% off at Pro Studio Masters (for who knows how long).
The only read of the Copland Three that I really like is Copland's own.... With the Philharmonia Orchestra.....
Not the best played Copland 3 out there, but there is a musical connection that are just missed by others.
The Oregon Symphony with Carlos Kalmar conducting on Pentatone. Typically excellent sound from Pentatone with a performance that is not episodic or bombastic.
I do like their earlier album of British music, with the RVW Fifth Symphony and Elgar's Cocaine Overture (didn't know it was used so widely "In London Town"):
Um, that's "Cockaigne". Spell check strikes again?

I doubt seriously they are in the same league as Detroit.
OTOH, the first couple of volumes in Slatkin's Ravel series with Lyon were VERY careful sounding, with no flair or excitement at all - you'd think a French orchestra could play French music! ;-)
" you'd think a French orchestra could play French music! ;-)"
Just in case anyone misunderstands the point that you are making, the Jun Markle Debussy series with Lyon proves that tney very much can play French music.
a lot of turnover since then.
I think Nogano is SOOOOOO over rated.
