Alsop seems uninspired in this recording. She bills herself as the logical heir to Berstein and Copland but outside of her outreach efforts (which are desperatly needed) I find little else to compare her to them. This is a rather pedantic reading at best. She follows what's written in the score but that's as far as she goes. There is little else that is brought to life here. It's as if she knew nothing of the character of what Copland was getting at. Life experiece and imagination are the things that make a distinctive reading and not just mere technique. Is it any wonder why she is at loggerheads with the musicians at her most recent gig?
