'An American in Paris' is one of Gershwin's most vivacious works, an orchestral ballet saturated in homesickness and the blues. This recording, however, uses the new 2019 critical edition and offers Gershwin's original orchestration, unheard for 75 years - leaner, more angular and transparent, it also employs the correct use of the iconic taxi horns, for a new sonic experience. The breezy vitality of Copland's 'An Outdoor Overture' is balanced by Bernstein's 'Songfest' - written to celebrate the Bicentennial Year in America, setting the verses of 13 of the country's poets.
