Notes & Reviews:

George Gershwin fired up the New York music scene with his mélange of alluring tunes and refinement of the jazz vibe. His Strike up the Band Overture opened a flashy Broadway hit and, inspired by a train ride, the composer heard his masterpiece Rhapsody in Blue as a "musical kaleidoscope of America". Promenade was reconstructed from a 1937 film score, and Catfish Rowwas Gershwin's concert suite from the opera Porgy and Bess . Acclaimed as a "bold, gutsy performance with plenty of pizzazz" and with "impressive brilliance and depth", JoAnn Falletta's previous Gershwin volume can be found on NBD0025.
