Album Review

The Houston Grand Opera mounted a revival of George Gershwin's 1935 musical/opera Porgy and Bess in July 1976, and brought it to Broadway in September. In November, RCA Victor recorded a full-length cast album of the show, released as a multi-record set in 1977. In 1983, a one-disc abridgement of highlights was released, and this is the CD version of that album, which was reissued in 1993. Unlike recordings that have taken a pop, jazz, or Broadway approach, this one positions Porgy and Bess squarely as an opera, with singing that emphasizes musical embellishment over lyrical expressiveness. As such, it is likely to appeal more to opera fans than to show music fans, but the quality of the Gershwin score, from "Summertime" to "I Loves You, Porgy," is unmistakable.
