Picture Perfect: August 24 - New York Composers Go to Hollywood

Although Leonard Bernstein’s concert suite for “On the Waterfront” is fairly well known, the original cues as they appeared in the film were long believed to be lost.  But the audio was preserved on acetate discs used for playback during the film’s recording sessions.  We’ll hear some of it, alongside Aaron Copland’s original recordings for “The Red Pony,” dances from Virgil Thomson’s “Louisiana Story” – so far, the only film score to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music – and Elie Siegmeister’s “They Came to Cordura,” which provides the now-familiar signature tune for “Picture Perfect.”

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
