Notes & Reviews:

Porgy and Bess and An American in Paris deservedly rank among George Gershwin's most popular works, while in his Three Preludes for piano and Piano Concerto the composer's love of jazz, popular and classical music also find spirited expression. Frank Villard's sparkling arrangements for clarinet and strings give legendary numbers including 'Summertime', "I got plenty o' nuttin'" or 'It ain't necessarily so' a new voice, accentuate their jazz flavor or add new timbres to Gershwin's unforgettable music for the stage and concert hall.
