About

This concert film made in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles in 1976 captures a memorable performance conducted by the doyen of American composers, Aaron Copland. It includes some of his greatest and most attractive music, from the patriotic flourish of Fanfare for the Common Man and the spirited orchestral fantasy El Salón México, to the colloquial warmth of his suite from the opera The Tender Land. Of particular importance is the collaboration with the great Benny Goodman in the masterwork he commissioned and premiered, the Clarinet Concerto.

This recording includes a performance of the Clarinet Concerto by Benny Goodman that will have cross-over appeal given his status as the so-called ‘King of Swing’ and its inclusion of jazz references. The concerto is now one of the most attractive and often played of the twentieth century.

Reviews

Copland was 75 when this short but attractive concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic was filmed for the long-running PBS arts series Great Performances. The video shows Copland as a precise, energetic and alert conductor, smiling happily at the orchestra after each piece and enjoying himself enormously in the performance of the Hoedown from the ballet Rodeo. It’s a great watch, and a rewarding listen as well.  Christian Hoskins
