I generally don't like cuts to classical pieces (most notably Rachmaninoff 2nd Symphony and Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto), but this one I'm kind of on the fence.....
Same here. I think Bernstein had the right idea.
At least Bernstein himself was a composer..... Some of the cuts and score doctoring I've encountered by non-composers (George Szell for one) were just hideous.......
Bernstein's cut in Copland's Third Symphony gives the ending a melancholy sense of finality...... The original seems to interfere with that.........
What's interesting is the performance I love conducted by Copland himself does have the cuts in it.
