Gerswhin’s “Porgy and Bess” is often referred to as “American Folk Opera”; Gerswhin used folkloristic spiritual, blues and jazz elements and thus created an immensely successful work that is situated between verismo opera and musical and yet is a unique Invention

In this recording, Lorin Maazel and the Cleveland Orchestra succeed in doing justice to all stylistic currents within the work with the highest art of differentiation. Full of tension and with great verve Maestro Maazel leads a brilliant ensemble through this gripping and heartfelt story

“Porgy and Bess” appears in the successful series “Decca Opera”, in which every recording is released with an original cover design in a new look The complete track listing as well as information about the respective production can be found in the booklet

Including digital bonus material – the complete libretto (in the original language as well as in German translation) is also available.
