with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra
here join forces to present a disc of works by George Gershwin.Rhapsody in Blue
was originally arranged by Ferde Grofe for jazz band before being orchestrated for symphony orchestra. Here Kempf and the Bergen Philharmonic play this original version.Concerto in F
was a commission for Gershwin to write a 'proper' piano concerto, but still takes the rhythms, melodic structures and bluesy harmonies of popular music.
The disc is completed by Gershwin's two remaining works for piano and orchestra, the Second Rhapsody
and Variations on 'I Got Rhythm'
