Remastered from the original master tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound

"...on the RCA SACD, the famous opening clarinet solo in Rhapsody in Blue appears to emanate from both speakers. Analogue Productions focuses the clarinet to the right of center between the two speakers, where it should be, and reduces its size to normal. The piano is, surprisingly, balanced correctly front and center. It is not at all spotlighted, but it also not lost in the mix. ... The RCA SACD drowns the orchestra in a hyper-reverberant acoustic setting that becomes a more natural, airy, hall sound with Analogue Productions. The strings are sweet, and the busy instrumental detail in the raucous climaxes of An American in Paris is outstanding." — Arthur Lintgen, The Absolute Sound, January 2015

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.
