Picture Perfect: Semi-documentaries

ulysses_kay_the_quiet_one.jpg

A “semi-documentary” is documentary-like, but allows staged or fictional elements, sometimes recreations or reenactments, sometimes flat-out embellishments, often with non-actors playing most of the roles.  Enjoy music from four acclaimed examples, including “The Cummington Story” (Aaron Copland), “The Quiet One” (Ulysses Kay), “Windjammer” (Morton Gould), and “Louisiana Story” (Virgil Thomson), the only film score ever to be awarded a Pulitzer Prize.  Artistic truth is based on fact, this Saturday at 6 pm.

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.
