Copland’s distinctive and highly appealing “American” sound emerges every time we hear the simple melodies of
Appalachian Spring and the
Old American Songs. A leading champion of American music, Marin Alsop introduces the romantic sounds of the early 20th-century composer Edward Collins before the infectious jazz rhythms of George Gershwin’s signature orchestral showpiece,
An American in Paris, ends the program in sassy style.
