The Observer

Gershwin called Rhapsody in Blue a "musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our blues, of our metropolitan madness" – an ideal description of a work which, even now, epitomises the birth of American music ... It may come as a surprise to learn he scored it for two pianos, with orchestration provided later by Ferde Grofé. The Labèque sisters give a relaxed, louche, smoky but beautifully lean performance .


The Independant

4 Stars Reviewed by Andy Gill ... dextrous drama to satisfy, with delightful little jazzy touches, while the re-statement of the theme as a cakewalk is entirely in keeping with the mood and momentum of the piece.
