Of course, I'm listening to the 16/44.1 stream via QOBUZ and not paying hard earned money (or your SS tax $$) for the download, so I guess that might explain why I'm easily pleased my anything and everything fresh and new.
OK, maybe not Bartok string quartets, but just about everything else. :-)
and I thought the rest of it was quite good as well!
But I'm a sucker for Copland.
I listened to nearly all of it on the Naxos Music Library app. Granted, it's lo-rez sound, but I thought the performance was dull dull dull, compared to some others, including Slatkin/St. Louis and either Bernstein recording. My favorite is Oue/Minnesota on CD; the day that it comes out as a high-rez download, I am taking out my credit card.
Concerning the ending, Marin Alsop used a different ending than other performances in her locally live performance with the Cleveland Orchestra and in a broadcast download with Bournemouth, not sure what's on her recording.
