George Gershwin Reviewed by the Boston Evening in 1939
I’ve been having fun listening to Earl Wild’s recording of George Gershwin’s Concerto in F made fortyÂ years ago by the Boston Pops, which was conducted by Arthur Fiedler (“Ah-thah Feed-lah” as we called him up home).
….(the concerto was) more interesting than significant. There are entertaining moments in the concerto that could have been written only by Gershwin, but they remain moments. And one came away with the renewed impression that Gershwin’s greatest work was done in the glorious musical comedies. — Boston Evening Transcript, November 18, 1939
Can’t win ‘em all, I guess.
