Description
An arrangement by Robert Russell Bennett of some of George Gershwin's most popular songs, the orchestral suite Gershwin in Hollywood includes "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "A Foggy Day," "Love Walked In," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," and "Love Is Here to Stay." In his hugely popular one-movement symphonic poem An American in Paris, the colorful orchestration includes four saxophones and several taxi horns, and its melancholic blues theme is one of the finest Gershwin ever wrote. The Symphonic Picture from his great opera Porgy and Bess was arranged by Bennett in 1943.

"The New Zealanders cope splendidly with the Gershwin idiom—gone are the embarrassing days when orchestras couldn't swing—and bring a catchy rhythmic zip both to An American in Paris and the Cuban Overture.... The recording is vivid."—Gramophone

"Naxos has struck artistic gold with its 'American Classics' series…. Judd and his musicians play these great pastiches with brio."—Coral Gables Gazette

"Judd draws a remarkably eloquent and poignant sense from his musicians. While there is no singer, if you've ever been in love, it will surely speak to your heart, even without words.... The recording quality seems excellent, the orchestra is excellent, and the music is both intelligent and passionate."—Jamestown Post-Journal
