 Classical Net Review - Copland - Ballet Music
Unlike most conductors, Zinman presents both of Copland's colorful western ballets in their complete, original editions, and it is heartwarming to hear them in such thoroughly committed and refreshing performances.

The Baltimore Symphony plays at least as well as the St. Louis Symphony did in their EMI recording of these two ballets, but Zinman's interpretations are considerably more exciting, colorful, and coherent than Slatkin's.
