Gershwin's Original Orchestrations. Working from Gershwin's original manuscripts, Steven Richman and the Harmonie Ensemble/New York recapture the lean, unsentimental style the composer intended for An American in Paris and Concerto in F (here featuring Lincoln Mayorga, piano soloist). Also included are the first recordings of the Overture to Of Thee I Sing (radio version) and Roy Bargy's orchestration of the Three Preludes. "America's best and most knowledgeable Gershwin interpreter" (BR KLASSIK)

Gershwin orchestré par Gershwin. Steven Richman et l'Harmonie Ensemble/New York (avec, en soliste, le pianiste Lincoln Mayorga) offrent une lecture d'Un Américain à Paris et du Concerto en Fa directement inspirée des manuscrits originaux de Gershwin. Épurée, sans mélo, l'interprétation est au plus près des intentions du compositeur. Également au programme, et pour la première fois au disque, l'Ouverture de Of Thee I Sing (dans la version remaniée pour la radio) et Trois Préludes dans l'orchestration de Roy Bargy. "Un pur régal sonore qui conjugue inventivité, vitalité, humour et swing." (CLASSICA)

Gershwins Originalorchestrationen. Ausgehend von den Originalhandschriften Gershwins, lässt Steven Richman mit dem Harmonie Ensemble/New York den schlanken, unsentimentalen Stil wieder aufleben, den sich der Komponist in An American in Paris und seinem Concerto in F (mit Lincoln Mayorga als Solist am Klavier) zu eigen gemacht hat. Die Ersteinspielung der Ouvertüre von Of Thee I Sing (Rundfunkfassung) und Three Preludes in der Orchestrierung von Roy Bargy runden die Aufnahme ab. "Amerikas 'bester' und sachkundigster Gershwin-Interpret" (BR KLASSIK)
