Gershwin: Porgy & Bess Highlights.

Album including Album cover. Formats & Prices. Porgy and Bess, George Gershwin’s only opera, the masterwork of American music theatre, had to fight hard on its way to its German audience as it was ostracised as nigger music in the Third Reich. The blockage was only broken by the legendary production by Robert Breen which was toured first in the US and then across Europe from 1952 until 1955. The present recording documents the guest performance of the ensemble at the Berliner Festwochen 1952. Amongst them are William Warfield, Cab Calloway and also the young Leontyne Price; this is probably the very first sound document on which she can be heard. Here is a captivating document of the highest musical and dramatic intensity, making the listener hold his breath atmospherically and dramatically from the first to the last minute.

George Gershwin: Porgy & Bess. The opening scene, for example, is a vibrant portrait of life on Catfish Row, full of chaotic talking, shouting, improvised singing, and drumming that continues throughout the whole scene, subsiding only when the drama demands it, as in the shocked silence that follows Robbins' murder and for the showcase musical numbers like "Summertime," and "A woman is a sometime thing. Leontyne Price was only 25 when the recording was made, and Bess was her breakthrough role; while she doesn't have the dramatic presence of the other leads, she sings with thrilling fullness and passion. The noise level of the recording is initially distracting, but as the magic of the performance takes hold, it becomes less of an issue.
