Gershwin: Complete Piano Works
Format: COMPACT DISC
The complete published works by Gershwin are quite extraordinary for their invention. His jazz bubbles over with clever ideas for piano (Gershwin was, after all, a true virtuoso of the piano). His compositions have an abundance of colors and genres that blend, bind and burst into new and spacious musical language. Young talent, Maurizio Zaccaria plays with a secure and natural touch. This release includes the transcriptions of the Gershwin' Songs (18), the Three Preludes, the Uncategorized Preludes, the pianistic transcription (by the composer) of the famous 'Rhapsody in Blue', the innovative (Double) Waltzes, and several other pieces, including original transcriptions from 'Porgy and Bess', 'Shall We Dance', and 'Rosalie'. The recording is fully natural with no mastering additions, made with 4 microphones (2 close, 2 far).
