Доп. информация: Leonard Bernstein conducts the New York Philharmonic in some of Aaron Copland’s best-known works, in what is widely considered the reference version for many of these pieces. This recording is in both stereo and MCH, with the MCH sourced from the original 3-track masters (so front, center, and right are from discrete sources, and rears are synthetic ambience)

Review from Classical CD Review
The Copland SACD is outstanding in every way. Bernstein always was one of the finest interpreters of the composer’s music, and this CD contains four of his most popular works. Originally these were included on two LPs (which are reproduced on the front and back covers) with only the Dance from Music for the Theatre missing. These are dynamic performances beautifully played by the NYP. It seems odd that Billy the Kid was recorded (Oct. 20, 1959) in Symphony Hall in Boston instead of the two usual recording sites for the orchestra, Avery Fischer Hall or Manhattan Center. However, producer John McClure and his crew did a superb job in capturing the warm acoustics of the famed hall. It’s interesting to compare this sound with the other “surround sound” recording made in Symphony Hall, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which can be heard on a Pentatone CD recorded in January 1976 with Sir Colin Davis conducting Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4. Of course Copland’s score with its explosive percussion is more of a sonic showpiece than the rather gentle Mendelssohn, but both recordings have very natural sound and presence; I think the Pentatone issue has a more natural multi-channel effect. McClure and his staff also were successful recording the three other works (Appalachian Spring, Oct. 9, 1961; El Salón México, May 20, 1961; Rodeo, May 2, 1960) in Manhattan Center. Again it seems the orchestra is in front with only ambient sound coming from the other speakers—a very pleasing effect. Probably the greatest gain in this SACD release is the cleaner definition of sound throughout because of the ability of SACD to convey more of sound on the original tapes.
Review from Russell at SA-CD.net
Another true classic recording has arrived on SACD, courtesy of Sony. This time it’s Leonard Bernstein’s vital and inspired interpretations of four Copland favorites: Appalachian Spring, Billy the Kid, Rodeo, and El Salon Mexico. Lenny is fully in his element here, and IMO these performances, recorded in 1959-61, have never been equalled for spontaneity, spunk, and rhythmic snap, even bettering the composer’s own recordings (also on SACD). I compared the sound of this new MCH SACD (in stereo) to the SBM’d CD in Sony’s ‘Bernstein Century’ series, and the SACD beats it handily. The CD sounded quite good actually, but the SACD was much more open and three-dimensional, with a wider, deeper soundstage and a more palpable presence. The SACD has a brighter and more extended treble than the CD (and it’s brighter than what we usually hear from present-day orchestral recordings), but it never becomes harsh or strident. Being 40+ year-old recordings, there’s also a trace of hiss, but it’s not intrusive.
IMO this is the most impressive Sony SACD reissue so far, and an outstanding example of how wonderful early stereo recordings can be; perhaps not quite equal to what RCA and Decca were doing then, but it still has many of the right qualities (and it’s certainly lots better than what Columbia would produce later on)
Приятного прослушивания
