Notes & Reviews:

"This wonderful Gershwin CD is filled with brilliant performances... one of them Gershwin's own... the result is a modern stereophonic recording of Gershwin playing his most famous work... Another attraction is Thomas's account of 'An American in Paris' with the New York Philharmonic, which is among the finest recordings ever made of this work. With excellent sound throughout... this disc is highly recommended." - High Fidelity
