Notes & Reviews:

An unparalleled collection of many of Gershwin's most popular pieces from Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris to a collection of songs and overtures and a complete recording of Gershwin's only full-length opera Porgy and Bess. Many of the orchestras and artists in this set are internationally acclaimed names when it comes to the music of Gershwin - from Katia and Marielle Labèque and Barbara Hendricks, to Arthur Fielder and the Boston Pops; Lorin Maazel's complete recording of Porgy and Bess from Cleveland has been a classic of the gramophone since it was released in 1976.

"This superb recording with Cleveland forces conducted by Maazel establishes the work's formidable status beyond question... the recording is one of the most vivid that even Decca has produced" -The Penguin Guide
