“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
Just achingly beautiful. Thanks so much.
This made my Saturday evening. Real American music at its pinnacle.
Damn.Thats not a piano. Its an extension of her soul....
Fun fact. Mitch Miller (of sing along with Mitch) was in the orchestra when this premiered.
George Gershwin, himself, would have been in awe of that performance. Wow!
This is the finest music ever written. I cannot listen to it without crying at the end. Magnificent version, thank you.
WOW!! Talk about feeling the music. Just fabulous
Absolutely stunning... Thank you for finding and presenting this. I am rarely in awe of my species, but sometimes, it is unavoidable....Mike in Canada
's wonderful, 's marvelous, 's Gershwin!One of the finest compositions ever written, played beautifully here, and one of my all-time favorites.Thanks.
And if you can't listen to this, and see in your head a montage of a thousand vignettes of everyday life in New York City circa 1920, your soul is blind.This entire piece is a poem to the Big Apple, Gershwin's birthplace and home for most of his life.
BTW, this composition turns 100 in 2 more years.Imagine hearing it fresh in 1924, starting with the signature smart-ass "Look at me!" clarinet glissando solo opening, one of the most instantly recognized openings in orchestral history.
Khatia is doing it all from memory!
Best rendition of the United Airlines theme I ever heard, or saw.....thanks
The New York of yesterday.What a way of bringing it to life for us today.God, that was good!Heltau
