Previn plays & conducts Gershwin : Rhapsody Blue / American in Paris / Concerto - ASD 2754

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(Andre Previn is the solo pianist, and conductor of The London Symphony Orchestra. Additional musicians : Clarinettist Gervase de Peyer on "Rhapsody in Blue" ; Trumpeter Howard Snell on the Second Movement (II Adagio - Andante ...) of Piano Concerto)

George Gershwin (1898-1937) was a very successful and acclaimed composer, by the Early 1920s.

Gershwin certainly had no snobbish feelings at other forms of popular music than classical, such as jazz and music-hall ; the initial impulse that led him to write "Rhapsody in Blue" was a famous jazzman of the Early 20C, called Paul Whiteman, who harboured his own ambitions toward a more symphonic form of jazz ...
Side One : 1) "Rhapsody in Blue" (1924).

"An American in Paris" is another favourite from the Gershwin stable : Assured orchestration, and although the work is very personal to the composer's heart, it nevertheless sounds unselfconscious, gay, mocking, brash and even uses motor-horns and traffic effects, when performed.
Side One : 2) "An American in Paris" (1928).

The three-movement Piano Concerto in F major, was commissioned by the conductor of the New York Symphony Orchestra, Walter Damrosch, and it was this ensemble that backed Gershwin on solo piano, at its premiere. To be precise, the work has the outer framework of being a conventional concerto, but uses the musical speech of popular music and jazz for its melodic and harmonic elements.
Side Two : Piano Concerto in F major (1925) :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Adagio - Andante con moto 3) III Allegro agitato.
