RCA / BMG CD 6519-2RG, ADD
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue & An American in Paris
Earl Wild piano
Boston Pops Orchestra
Arthur Fiedler conductor
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.
