GERSHWIN, G.: Rhapsody in Blue / Strike Up the Band: Overture / Promenade (Weiss, Fullam, Buffalo Philharmonic, Falletta) (Blu-Ray Audio)

George Gershwin fired up the New York music scene with his mélange of alluring tunes and refinement of the jazz vibe. His Strike up the Band Overture opened a flashy Broadway hit and, inspired by a train ride, the composer heard his masterpiece Rhapsody in Blue as a “musical kaleidoscope of America”. Promenade was reconstructed from a 1937 film score, and Catfish Row was Gershwin’s concert suite from the opera Porgy and Bess. Acclaimed as a “bold, gutsy performance with plenty of pizzazz” and with “impressive brilliance and depth”, JoAnn Falletta’s previous Gershwin volume can be found on NBD0025.

Sound format: PCM Stereo / DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
