Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Everyone should have a set of Gershwin piano pieces. Of first importance is the Song Book, 18 songs arranged for piano alone. Beyond that, the three preludes and the Promenade are most important and appealing. This one adds in the solo version of the Rhapsody in Blue. The piano sounds very good. Votapek is probably readily available.

MusicWeb International, 30th May 2013
This is a terrific CD. Corinna Simon, one of Germany's leading piano teachers and a longtime Gershwin lover, really gets into the composer's spirit. Resisting the temptation to speed or get excessively flashy, she revels in the rhythms, buoyant tunes, and echoes of ragtime.
