Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue & An American in Paris

Earl Wild piano
Boston Pops Orchestra
Arthur Fiedler conductor

Recorded Date:
1959, 1961

Fiedler and Wild have this music in their blood, and their Rhapsody in Blue has snap, pizazz, and suavity. And it’s all there, uncut, which is more than I can say for some of the competition. After almost thirty years, these recordings still stand up musically, and sonically, they have a natural realism lacking in many present-day digital wonders.

Mark Koldys, American Record Guide, March / April 1988.
