Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound!
RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
With Rhapsody in Blue, George Gershwin, a popular songwriter, established himself as a serious composer. His American in Paris tells the story of a trip through the streets and cafes of France. A first rate orchestra (The Boston Pops), a distinguished conductor (Arthur Fiedler), and a superb pianist (Earl Wild) combine to make this recording something to be treasured.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped.
Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the
decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute
