Kunzel, Cincinnati Pops Orchestra
"Copland: The Music of America"

This album made quite a splash the year it was released back in 1997. Nominated for all of the big classical music awards, it went on to win many of them. Everything really came together on this record. The performances are top-notch, the music is all crowd-pleasing, even the artwork evokes exactly what everyone wants to see when they think of the idyllic Americana.

I'm doing homework for 'Appalachian Spring' which is why this got pulled out. Not that there's a bad time to pull it out, of course.
