Chicago Tribune Notes PCE's The City

The Chicago Tribune says:
... The film’s true worth lies in its seamless integration of music, cinematography and narration, newly recorded by Chicago actor Francis Guinan. Copland’s score, reflecting both his homespun manner and a harder-edged proto-minimalism, is recorded for the first time in its entirety by the Post-Classical Ensemble under Angel Gil-Ordonez.

This refurbished artifact from an earlier recession era amounts to a valuable and splendidly produced release...
