Copland Symphony #3, Molto Deliberato-Allegro Risoluto, NYPO/Bernstein
The final movement from my favorite symphony ever by Aaron Copland performed by the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Leonard Bernstein.
Copland was a genius at capturing the spirit of proud American sound and Bernstein was a genius at interpreting and delivering Copland’s music. The overall tone of the work is one of heroism and dignity, and it leaves an appropriately stirring impression.
Copland used his Fanfare for the Common Man in the beginning of his fourth movement.
I tried to put together some imagery that comes to my mind when I listen to this amazing piece. Enjoy!!! – JhnL33
