Amo essa música! 

Автор Christian Schonberger ( назад)
Doesn't get any better than this. Brilliant performance of a brilliant
composition. Love the rich orchestral textures embracing the voices. I
guess this song/aria doesn't receive more recognition because it is
decidedly early-to-mid 20th Century: harmonically rich,
complex, interesting and never dull or predictable. Perhaps not easily
accessible to people used to 18th/19th Century music. Fantastic use of
counterpoint and "dovetailing" melody lines. Gershwin was beyond genius. It
is obvious that the great Leonard Bernstein listened a lot (!) to Gershwin

Absolutely right - that confluence of styles will never occur again. There
were others, though, not just Jewish and Black: the European operetta style
is in there too, as are styles from Latin America and N. American folk
music. And all in one place - New York. It was a peak that popular music is
unlikely to reach again.

Too bad Gershwin died so young. I wonder what beautiful operas he would of

Автор John Bent ( назад)
There is still great music being composed, but now it is so much more
difficult to get the attention and raise the money. Where would Mozart have
been without the Emperor's sponsorship? Even the greats need help getting
to the stage. It's so sad, but also unfortunately true.

Bess is so beautiful!

How can that stupid Broadway "version" compete with this? Gershwin's
original magnum opus?

No, you're not the only one :(

Just perfect! I've been totally entranced for the last 5 minutes and 45

Incredible- I think this is the best Porgy & Bess of all times

Автор thirdunkle ( назад)
This is simply some of the most beautiful music ever written and performed
as pure sexual intercourse. The interchange in the second half as the male
and female vocally dances and weaves, calls and responds, is pure sexual
rhythm, the perfect metaphor for life creation and love in musical
form---and as erotic, overwhelming, pure and sensual as the best love
making. A defining composition of heterosexuality in song and music.

@23Shinin23 Don't worry, there are young people (like me) out there
determined to keep this music alive. :)

Автор Andrew Holborn ( назад)
Love survives strongest where people are not destracted by their constant
longing for more possessions; just have a simple home and their deep
love.This clip has stirring emotion in the acting and singing.

Автор shjakes ( назад)
@23Shinin23 Keep hope alive…after the latest Grammy awards where the retro
songs made the biggest impact, I hope the message is clear to the young'uns
who keep sampling without being original.

Sheer perfection. What a gorgeous duet, what phenomenal singers. There's no
greater proof than this that sublime art stirs something unique in the
human soul.

They are wonderful. It's too bad they were asked to lip sync their
obviously prerecorded track. The unnatural "realism" of their acting
undermines the strength of the music... the energy which a singer displays
when really singing heightens the drama rather than detracting from it, as
the director seems to think.

@madamerotten What an astute observation. This is a special synergy and
beautiful, so beautiful...

@pphleboman God of Jacob? Damned for eternity? What a crock. Anyway, this
is a great opera.

I played Oboe 1 in the Production of Porgy and Bess. I love this particular
song. Wow quite a terriffic experience. This has been one of the most
difficult pieces I have ever played and the most interesting. I think one
of the greatest accomplishments of my career so far as an oboist.

Автор Michael inAmerica ( назад)
This was an awesome piece of music. Thank you George!

Автор Larry Gott (153 года назад)
This was just beautiful!

Автор 4Rachy ( назад)
What a gorgeous rendition. A coloratura soprano and a deep baritone (if not
basso profundo ) duet. I did not know these two before. OK this is my
favorite 'Bess'. Amazing.

Автор Saxation1 ( назад)
@pphleboman i agree that the state of rap is crap these days, but keep in
mind that this opera was written by a white Jew.

@pphleboman It was the fusion of Jewish European and Black African musical
styles that fueled the genius of George Gershwin and others of his era.
There is nothing like it being created today.

This is quite possibly the greatest piece of music ever to come out of the
United States, performed beautifully here.

I am the only one who is deeply struck that music will never return to this
beautiful form?

@Gaseoushead ti just have found this - great voices ! where is the whole
fil /music to find ? I still remember this from my middleschool in
Aschaffenburg, Germany - The women part was sung by my girlfried /Classmate
B. Rollmann, and the musicleader of the school-choir sung the men part. I
learned the parts of B. just by listening to her perfect clear voice, and i
wish i could. get the film of the evening . I know the evening was
recorded- who knows more about it ?

@toobyu2859 It's obviously in playback in order to make this wonderful
movie. But you are right, it's quite a great rendition! I'm a student

Why is Bess so fascinating? Does she really know what she wants? Is it
drugs, or a man? Does she want an escape from the trials of life? As Linda
Richman would say, let's discuss!

Автор forgetmenot1937 ( назад)
First time I heard this version on the radio I was enchanted and like
others on here think it the best sung version ever. I am sure Gershwin
would also have thought so.

Автор bangfarang ( назад)
When I get around to listing my favorite popular music—to use the term
broadly—of the last hundred years, this always makes a quick appearance. I
live, and will likely die, in an Asian mountainside forest, and when I
think of the United States, my home, this is one of the pieces of music
that best represents the beauty of what my country once was, warts and all.

Gershwin is very talented, and Summertime is very well known, But I believe
this should recieve more recognition. This is truely a great song!
