Programme Note  
The challenge of enhancing a film with music was of great interest to Copland. He enjoyed the idea of adding to the dramatic action by creating an atmosphere unique to each production. He drew music from three films to make up a five movement suite for small orchestra: The City, Our Town, and Of Mice and Men. Each movement bears a title linking it with the action of the movie. The Suite is dedicated to Darius Milhaud, whom Copland considered a pioneer in the field of film music.

-Vivian Perlis, 1998
