Best of the Best

This is one of Copland's best collection of pieces played by one of the best orchestras of the mid-1900's, which was conducted by possibly the best conducter of the 20th century.

PS Quiet City is excellent as well.

The world-renowned New York Philharmonic is America's oldest symphony orchestra, continuing to maintain high standards in the performance of new and old music into its second century. Beginning in the 1820s, there were several attempts to found an orchestra in the city, the more successful of which were the Philharmonic Symphony Society (established in 1842) and the New York Symphony (established in 1878). The Philharmonic had a reputation for conservatism and high standards, hiring primarily European...
