Eric Myers
Opera News, December 2011

Filmed in Berlin at a New Year’s Eve gala in 2003, Ravel Meets Gershwin is, for the most part, a pops concert, and as these go, a superior one. Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic give ravishing accounts of the Fauré and Ravel pieces here…

The highlight of the concert is vocal soloist Dianne Reeves performing the Gershwin songs. Reeves is that rare bird, a jazz singer who gives as much weight to the words as to the music. Although she’s a true song stylist who can riff and scat with the best of them, she also makes every lyric tell—not just by way of her diamond-clear diction but through heartfelt phrasing that shows she knows what she’s singing about. © Opera News Read complete review
