This review is from: Bernstein Century - Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue / An American in Paris; Grofe (Audio CD)
At first, I was put off by Bernstein's interpretation of "Rhapsody in Blue." He changes some of the timing, especially in the piano solos. Now I see that his interpretation is wonderful: he reads some very sensual, bluesy phrasings in Gershwin's work. I really enjoyed this one. Don't make it your first copy of Gershwin, but do get it for a change of pace.
