Customer Review

on 8 April 2012
Gershwin has always been one of my favourites, ever since listening to his 'Rhapsody in Blue' on the radio that one time. Therefore, I decided that it would be good to some of his greatest works on CD.

It does what it says on the tin: It presents the full-length version of 'Rhapsody in Blue' alongside other classics such as 'An American in Paris' and 'Porgy and Bess' in a well-compiled fashion. The wonderful thing is the variation in this CD - from the upbeat, fast-moving 'Cuban Overture' to the soft, calming 'Three Preludes No. 2', this CD presents a nice range of Gershwin's work.

It is, however, by no means a definitive collection of the composer's work. It simply gives a selection of his greatest works.

I would say that this is definitely worth the price - a measly five pounds when I got it - considering the quality of the compositions, the orchestration of the music and the quality of the sound, too. If you want Gershwin, get it here - but if you want the definitive collector's edition of pretty much everything he ever wrote, look elsewhere. He certainly didn't write just nine pieces,
