“Litton has the orchestra stylistically just right, moving seamlessly and organically between moments of cowboy-style local colour – piping tin whistle and sleazy trombones – to the ‘proper‘-style playing. Recorded in the orchestra’s Denver home venue, the sound is spacious, so that in Billy the Kid’s running battle the gunfire really does crackle.” - Erica Jeal, The Guardian “Litton calibrates the music's changes of mood and pace with great sensitivity; just listen to how he springs and shapes the languorous waltz from Billy in the Desert. I also relish the way he brings those big, surging string tunes into play... The lonely cowgirl is centre stage in the beautifully poised Corral Nocturne, which Litton phrases with the utmost delicacy. Not only that, he finds a hushed loveliness here that his rivals can’t match... I doubt you'll hear more illuminating or idiomatic accounts of these American classics anytime soon.” - Dan Morgan, MusicWeb International “The Colorado Symphony is simply radiant. Litton has a terrific sense of rhythm, and the necessary power is all here. I have no doubt this disc will become the new norm for Copland’s ballets.” - Steven Kruger, Fanfare Andrew Litton leads the Colorado Symphony in this rousing recording of ballets by Aaron Copland. Including the famous Billy the Kid and Rodeo, this collection also presents El Salón México and the little heard concert work An Outdoor Overture, all works which display Copland's efforts to incorporate American popular musics into his compositions. Litton not only conducts but plays honky-tonk in Ranch House Party from Rodeo, bringing additional fun to this marvellously performed assortment from a beloved American composer.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
