Washington Post features P-CE DVD Plow and River

The Washington Post reviews Naxos' re-release of The Plow That Broke the Plain (1936) and The River, with the Post-Classical Ensemble re-recording Virgil Thomson's original score.

Said The Post's Philip Kennicott :
The music draws on Thomson's study and appreciation of cowboy ditties, church hymns and other folk melodies, all of which have such deep and far-reaching associations that few Americans will fail to find something that is both familiar and unconsciously haunting.
