Notes & Reviews:

This lovely collection from The Nash Ensemble features concert music by composers who also wrote film scores for Hollywood. While this was just one string to the considerable bows of Gershwin and Copland, Bernard Herrmann and Franz Waxman are best known for their music for Hitchcock films. Vertigo, North by Northwest, Marnie and Psycho for Herrmann; and Rebecca and The Paradine Case for Waxman. Center stage is Gershwin's Song-book, arranged by the composer for solo piano in order to present the songs "as George Gershwin plays them himself."

Financial Times, 20th June 2015
The Nash Ensemble's adroit playing tug at the heart-strings.
