"I am truly loving the Gershwin disc. Great, great work."
- Michael Feinstein
Steven Richman and Harmonie Ensemble / New York recapture George Gershwin's lean and unsentimental style found in the original manuscripts of An American in Paris and Concerto in F featuring Lincoln Mayorga. First recordings of the Overture to Of Thee I Sing(radio version) and Roy Bargy's orchestration of the Three Preludes are the icing on the cake.
Following last year's Grammy-nominated Music for Peter Gunn, Richman has assembled the ideal cast of musicians to interpret this music, blending their superb command of ensemble playing with brilliant soloing skills. His deep appreciation of the music and commitment to the highest artistic ideals created the fertile environment that makes this recording so successful.
"Great! Wonderful performance, really stunning. Congratulations!"
