COPLAND: THE CITY (NTSC) (Angel Gil-Ordonez/ Post-Classical Ensemble) (Naxos DVD: 2.110231)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Made for the 1939 New York World's Fair (\The World of Tomorrow"), 'The City' is a seminal documentary film distinguished for the organic integration of narration (scripted by city planner Lewis Mumford), cinematography (Ralph Steiner and Willard Van Dyke), and music (Aaron Copland).

As the film contains no dialogue, it is possible to create a fresh soundtrack and discover musical riches inaudible on the original monaural recording.

The score, arguably Copland's highest achievement in film, was also his ticket to Hollywood; it has been called "an astonishing missing link not only in the genesis of Copland's Americana style but in American music and cinema" Mark Swed, The Los Angeles Times

As Copland created no suite from 'The City', the present DVD at the same time marks the first recording of this music in its entirety other than the original film."
