"The same freshness in his reaction was evident in Chopinís 2nd Sonata, which was again spiced with colour. The Funeral March was monumentally mournful. The finale was even more fleeting than usual, with some careful pedalling heightening its ghostliness." The Times

 
 

Running to four volumes and including over 4Ĺ hours of original Gershwin material, Jack Gibbons's award-winning "Authentic George Gershwin" series has been described by Edward Jablonski, New York's respected Gershwin biographer and friend of the Gershwin family, as "THE outstanding survey of George Gershwin's work". Charting Gershwin's life from his first great hit "Swanee" to his moving last songs, written in Hollywood, these discs include all Gershwin's major concert masterpieces, 29 of his original dazzling show-tune improvisations, and more besides, all stunningly recreated in Gershwin's original keyboard style by Jack Gibbons. Many of the items have never before been performed or recorded except by the composer himself in the 1920s and 30s.

"Staggering… among the most exhilarating feats of pianism I've heard on disc... Jack Gibbons proves equal to the challenge the music poses not only in terms of virtuosity but, more importantly, artistry… exceptionally impressive" Gramophone

"A truly remarkable recording that brings together an astonishing array of pianistic pyrotechnics that worthily reflect their extraordinary composer"
BBC Music Magazine
