Notes & Reviews:

George Gershwin's An 'American in Paris' provides a further synthesis of the jazz that he saw as the essentially American folk-music and the traditional classical orchestra. This finds a further place in his triumphantly successful opera 'Porgy and Bess,' from which Robert Russell Bennett has drawn a Symphonic Picture. 'Cuban Overture' turns to the characteristic rumba, while 'Gershwin in Hollywood' is an instrumental arrangement of some of Gershwin's best known songs.
