Copland America's best composer?

Robert Gable has a new post on Aaron Copland at his aworks blog which mainly interests me because it refers back to his earlier post proclaiming Copland as "America's greatest composer."

I want to stew about that a little while. But my first reaction -- other than immense relief he didn't say "Charles Ives" -- is that it's a logical suggestion. Gable said some folks mention Duke Ellington, surely the best jazz composer; I'm rather partial to Gershwin. (I love Stravinsky, but can we really claim him?) Copland's "Third Symphony" is one of my favorite pieces of music, and I also really like the clarinet concerto.

Hello ! I was searching for people that could have an interest for my music with the help of the name Charles Ives (one of my gods) and found your blog.

My new album is now available for sell, but it's still without its first reviews. In the past, I have received incredible press from a variety of sources (All Music Guide, great composers...).

See and mostly listen by yourself some Philosophie Fantasmagorique.

We should be meticulous and discriminating in all the intelligence we give. We should be extraordinarily prudent in giving opinion that we would not think of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to refrain from giving recommendation which we don't mind when it damages those who depreciate us at our word.
