CSRV 385. The Suite from The River and the Plow That Broke the Plains, along with Symphony on a Hymn Tune comprise three of my favorite Virgil Thomson works. Two of those works as included on this CD are magnificently interpreted by the great Leopold Stokowski and I have heard none better. There have been recordings of other performances of these works, but this is the must have standard which I'm proud to own in both LP and CD format. If you can still get one, this is the recording to have. Read more. The Plow That Broke the Plains, The River. 0 listeners. 10 tracks. Play album. Let us know what you think of the website.
