Copland, Lincoln Portrait

UPDATE:
I was somewhat surprised that no one wrote a firebomb comment in response to me trashing Copland's Lincoln Portrait in this review. Writing to applaud me for doing so, a friend recently reminded me of the perfect send-up of Copland's trite piece, the hilarious Bach Portrait by the inimitable Peter Schickele (sound embedded below).
