內容簡介

Having taken up the post of music director with the Colorado Symphony in 2013, Andrew Litton
has chosen a highly fitting programme for the orchestra's first recording on BIS: the Wild West, its
folk music, traditions and legends loom large in Aaron Copland's ballet scores Billy the Kid and
Rodeo. The two works were the result of the composer's search during the early 1930's for a new
musical language. Copland himself described his reasons for this as follows: 'An entirely new public
for music had grown up around the radio and the phonograph. It made no sense to ignore them and
to continue writing as if they did not exist. I felt that it was worth the effort to see if I couldn't say what
I had to say in the simplest possible terms.' In the two ballets, this new direction can be felt in the
immediacy of the music, but also in Copland's use of cowboy tunes. A similar approach, but with
Mexican themes, characterizes the slightly earlier El Salón Mexico, inspired by a visit to a dancehall
in Mexico and the atmosphere he experienced there. Whereas these three works belong to the
most popular in Copland's entire production, the opening piece, An Outdoor Overture, is something
of a rarity – especially on disc. Composed in the same year as Billy the Kid, the overture was part of
an educational campaign with the slogan 'American Music for American Youth' and its snappy
rhythms and colourful orchestration will have made it as successful in its original purpose as it is
here, as a curtain raiser. The Colorado Symphony is obviously enjoying itself in this all-American
programme, as is its conductor Andrew Litton, who joins the revelry as honky-tonk pianist in the
Celebration section of Billy the Kid and the Ranch House Party
