DescriptionThe program, sponsored by IBM and hosted by June Lebell, is devoted to the MacDowell Colony, an artists' colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, founded by Marian MacDowell, that provides peace, quiet and beautiful landscape that enhance the creative work of artists, composers, playwrights, poets, and writers. William Schuman, a composer and chairman of the colony, and composers Elliott Carter and Charles Wuorinen review the benefits, advantages, initiatives, agendas, and working and living conditions at the colony with June LeBell, the radio host of classical music station WQXR. The conversations and discussions are intercut by excerpts or entire parts from music compositions: New England Countryside by Aaron Copland, Mass (a very brief excerpt) by Leonard Bernstein, the opening to Concerto on old English rounds by William Schuman, Holiday overture by Carter, final section of Symphony no. 3 by Charles Wuorinen, and the final section from Pulcinella suite by Stravinsky.
