COPLAND, A.: Appalachian Spring Suite / Symphonic Ode / CRESTON, P.: Symphony No. 3, "3 Mysteries" (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Aaron Copland’s suite from the ballet Appalachian Spring won him a Pulitzer Prize and global recognition. The famous Quaker song ‘Simple Gifts’ and the American ambience of this suite contrast with the more modernist Symphonic Ode, which conveys rugged grandeur through an uncompromising structural unity. Neglected since the late 1960s, Paul Creston’s music was once amongst the most frequently performed of any American composer. His poetic Symphony No 3 is an orchestral Life of Christ, movingly expressed through themes inspired by Gregorian chant.
