 The way Copeland intended it to be played July 10, 2014 By John F. (dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "Copeland himself conducts Appalachian spring: you can hear the difference: I was listening to WNYC at very low volume and quickly realized that this was a special performance. The old RCA recording is well-done and the digital master sounds very good." Report Abuse
