Notes & Reviews:

"Bernstein's approach is inspirational, exceptionally flexible and completely spontaneous. The performance of 'An American in Paris' is vividly characterized, brash and episodic; an unashamedly American view, with the great blues tune marvelously timed and phrased as only a great American orchestra can do it." - Penguin Guide

Notes & Reviews:

This selection is a DSD (Direct Stream Digital) recording.
