When my wife sat down to listen to this piece I didn't tell her the title. She imagined she was living in Brooklyn drinking coffee and watching the day progress through a brownstone window-- from the neighborhood waking up in the morning to the hustle and bustle of the shopkeepers to the eventual winding down of the day and the coming of night. The second time she listened she thought of Sydney Poitier.
The name of this Copland piece is "Quiet City." And while my wife's reveries are her own, Copland's Quiet City is a very evocative work.
This performance uses VSL VI strings (including new Appassionata Violins), the VSL VI French-Style English horn, and the VSL VI solo trumpet in C.
