Notes & Reviews:

"There's no denying that when it comes to playing Gershwin, Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops can stand with the best of them. Theirs may be the big, bombastic, sound-spectacular approach that can sometimes leave the listener (if not also the musicians) exhausted and lose some of the more tender effects and nuances along the way, but all told they create a musical experience that is nothing short of thrilling..." -Caine, ARG
