Gershwin – Wild Fantasy (DXL 1072)


Out of stock


Gershwin was reknown for his talent as a virtuoso pianist, as well as a fine composer, and many of his performances were captured on piano roll recordings. Graham Scott brings these to life in this stunning performance together with other works including Earl Wild’s Grand Fantasy on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

Firmly established as one of Britain’s leading pianists, Graham Scott has performed widely in UK and internationally both in piano recitals and with leading orchestras including the London Philharmonic (at the Royal Festival Hall), Royal Scottish National Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Belgium National Symphony Orchestra, Monte Carlo Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Staatsphilharmonie Rheinlandpfalz under such conductors as Sir Charles Groves, Alexander Lazarev, Marin Alsop and Bernhard Klee. He has broadcast on BBC Radio and National Public Radio (USA) and as of August 2003 he takes up the post of Chair of the Keyboard Department at the Chicago College of Performing Arts.
