Notes and Editorial Reviews

The soundtrack album to Woody Allen's 1979 film "Manhattan" features Zubin Mehta leading the New York Philharmonic in beautiful orchestral arrangements by Tom Pierson of classic Gershwin songs as well as the ever-popular "Rhapsody in Blue" with pianist Gary Graffman. One of the finest Gershwin albums around.

"Since Woody Allen's Manhattan (1979), Rhapsody in Blue (1924) has become almost an unofficial anthem for New York. The truth is, Gershwin's music is gloriously cinematic, evocative and pictorial and makes one wonder what might have happened had he ever scored a dramatic feature." - MusicWeb International
