Album Description  
Pianist Jon Nakamatsu, Gold Medal winner at the Tenth Van Cliburn Competition, follows last year’s dramatic Liszt recital with an all-Gershwin program featuring the Concerto in F and Rhapsody in Blue on this new SACD-only release. Conductor Jeff Tyzik also leads the Rochester Philharmonic in an exuberant reading of the Cuban Overture. Rhapsody in Blue was commissioned by well-known bandleader Paul Whiteman, who gave its premiere in 1924 in a program entitled “An Experiment in Modern Music” with Gershwin himself on the piano. The composer spoke of the Rhapsody as “a musical kaleidoscope of America.” This piece holds a special meaning for the Nakamatsu, who performed it at the White House for President and Mrs. Clinton. The Rochester Philharmonic has performed under the batons of such renowned guest conductors as Fritz Reiner, Leonard Bernstein, Sir Thomas Beecham, and Leopold Stokowski. Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik maintains the Orchestra’s national reputation for distinctive pops programming.
