Jazz master Aaron Diehl is the soloist in Still’s lovely gift to his wife and Williams’s astrological portraits of her friends. Tito Muñoz conducts this newly recorded all-American concert that also presents Copland’s moody cityscape and evocation of rustic joy, and Ives’s search for the unknowable.
