Album Notes
George Gershwin and Duke Ellington probably represent American music better than almost any composer. Each one has become synonymous with Jazz and the American Classic Songbook. Each in his own way wished to be more than simply a popular songwriter. Gershwin longed for Jazz to be recognized by mainstream (classical) music and wrote Rhapsody in Blue and then his famous Concerto in F for piano and orchestra to see that dream accomplished. Duke Ellington, another master of the piano with elegant technique, wrote New World A-Comin’ as a rhapsodic work for piano and orchestra with the same thoughts in mind. Peter Donohoe delivers an electric performance, recorded live with the Ama Deus Ensemble Orchestra in the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
