Disc worthwhile if only for Gershwin's amazing recording of his Second Rhapsody, paid for by himself as a try-out before the first performance.
This is the only recording with orchestra that Gershwin made of any of his piano and orchestra works, complete and without any cuts.
A triumph!

Just started on a music appreciation course and the first person this year is Gershwin. Learnt about his life and this CD is great as it it him playing his own compositions including his first version of Rhapsody in Blue.

Always nice to hear the master himself. You can buy a disk of f.e. Rachmaninov and taste the way his music was meant to be. And here we have George Gershwin. It's always nice to hear the newest records, but you hear them in perspective listening to this record.

Most enjoyable hearing the composer play. It gets a bit "samey" as the tunes progresses. Best played a little at a time.

The liking has nothing to do with anything but Gershwin's playing. So what else is there to say?

This was to replace a lost copy, so the content and quality were known.
