HASH(0x90c7b348) étoiles sur 5 A Definitive, Lovingly Performed Porgy 19 avril 2010
Par tinkerpup - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is Maazel's ground-breaking, revelatory first performance of Gershwin's masterpiece in its entirety. Maazel leaves nothing out (except "Lonely Boy", Bess's lovely duet with Serena, which does not appear in the published score), and his approach is loving, respectful, and intensely operatic. This is the first recording to reveal the scale of Gershwin's opera. Make no mistake about it, Maazel's Porgy is grand and ambitious, very much what George had in mind. And although at times Maazel is just a little stiff and European in his approach, he is never boring; the orchesta plays as if its life depended on it; and the singing is glorious. I might add that the Decca analogue sound is some of the finest ever. This recording is a real classic.

Either get this or the Simon Rattle / Glyndebourne on EMI if you really want to know what Gershwin's opera is about. Maazel's version is much better recorded, has glorious singing, and conveys the excitement of new discovery, while Rattle has a better hold on the work's structure and idiom. (Still, Rattle's greatest virtue is his understanding of the composer's intensely personal, American approach to recitative; in this regard he is clearly superior to Maazel). The third complete Porgy and Bess, the Houston Opera performance on RCA, is okay but relatively superficial and lacking in nuance, with too many concessions to contemporary sensibilities--Gershwin dished up for people who like Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The Maazel, though, is highly recommended. Ideally one should have both this and the Rattle.

HASH(0x9061be40) étoiles sur 5 Gershwin taken seriously 15 octobre 2010
Par Steve Schwartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Beautifully played and sung, this is one of the two best Porgy's out there, at least if we're talking about the complete opera. What happens when Gershwin is played by world-beating musicians will probably change your perception of the composer. Most of the singers do well, with a few hiccups along the way. Willard White as Porgy has a big, rich baritone. Leona Mitchell as Bess and Florence Quivar as Serena deliver some strong singing. However, all three don't do much dramatically beyond the standard (and quite acceptable) notions of Operatic Acting. McHenry Boatwright's Crown is probably classic. Maria (Barbara Conrad) has problems negotiating her speaking voice into some form of agreement with her singing one. On the other hand, she delivers a great "I hates your strutting style" to Sportin' Life. Francois Clemmons as Sportin' Life gives a performance of real style. Cab Calloway, of course, buries him, but then again Calloway blows away everybody. The actors in the white speaking parts embarrass themselves, although not as badly as in the Harnoncourt recording.

The good news is that the opera is the complete Boston premiere version, rather than the New York Broadway version Gershwin trimmed in the interests of performance practicality. Maazel gets some frankly unearthly playing from the Cleveland Orchestra. But he does have problems handling Gershwin's transitions, and the dramatic pace drags here and there. Still, as I've said, one of the two best versions out there.

Par Mark E. Stenroos - Publié sur Amazon.com

This landmark recording has been updated with Decca's 24/96 remastering techniques, and it sounds more incredible than ever.

I would mention that this same 24/96 remastering has been included in Decca's 7-CD "Gershwin Colection" box set. That set includes all of the big Gershwin pieces along with this complete Porgy, retailing for around $35. However, that 7-CD set doesn't include the libretto for Porgy, which this set does, at around $30.

So, you have a choice: $30 for the opera with the libretto, or $35 for the opera without the libretto but with 4 additional well-filled CDs of Gershwin classics for another 5 bucks.

This recording has not been available for a number of years. I paid about fifty dollars for an ebay copy of the origial CD. There are only a few complete recordings of "Porgy and Bess". This is a chance to buy a copy of one of the masterpieces of U.S. music. /cf

Performance well done. The opening scene helps to set the listener in the place and time. Really liked the entire performance.
