As regards the performances, this is very much and example of a home team playing on their home ground. Earl Wild has performed this repertoire countless times and it shows. What is surprising is the level of excitement he is able to create as if playing it for the first time. This applies to the concerto especially but the Rhapsody is not far behind.
The purely orchestral pieces, the American and the Overture, are both given energetic and lively performances which can make so many others sound simply dull. The sleeves credit the clarinet soloist in the Rhapsody but I would have also liked the excellent trumpeter to have received equal praise for his superbly smooth delivery in both his solos in the concerto and American in Paris.
I would therefore suggest that these much enhanced older recordings and now sounding very much newer, certainly deserve to be considered very seriously by anyone interested in purchasing this generous selection. Owners of older versions of the disc can safely feel confident that an upgrade to this new remastering is well worth the modest outlay (in the USA) required.
I'm not going to write a piece by piece analysis. Many will want to purchase the disc for the same reason as me - to hear the original recording rendered in best possible sound quality. You won't be disappointed. This is really one of the best Living Stereo re-masters (I own a good number of the series), an audiophile's dream - with decent reproductive equipment you're almost in the concert hall! Others will just know the Rhapsody and be taking pot luck with the rest: well the other works on the disc are a great complement and you won't be disappointed either! 'An American in Paris' & "I got rhythm" variations are very well known in their own right - the other two works less so but will still have you dancing, tapping, or whatever, to their syncopated beats!!
In 1987 the name 'Boston Pops Orchestra' didn't fill me with visions of musical excellence! How ignorant I was! Stunning playing throughout from this famous orchestra - intonation, tempi, ensemble, dynamics, spot on.Read more ›
