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.

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?

Автор David Freedman ( назад)
Just perfect! I've been totally entranced for the last 5 minutes and 45 seconds.

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.

@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.

@berowne9 Beautifully said. I couldn't agree more.

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.

Автор Donald Irving ( назад)
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...

Автор TruthSerum101 ( назад)
@pphleboman God of Jacob? Damned for eternity? What a crock. Anyway, this is a great opera.

Автор havanatlc ( назад)
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 (154 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.

Автор TruthSerum101 ( назад)
@pphleboman Oh, please!

you is:):)

Автор jjmm47 ( назад)
nice high 'b' at the end

Автор madamerotten ( назад)
@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.

Автор JayeSpotTV ( назад)
Simply amazing to see and hear such GREATNESS come from such a GREAT and strong culture. I MISS cultured theatre and music.

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

Автор Ah Yeah ( назад)
I am the only one who is deeply struck that music will never return to this beautiful form?

Автор Gisela Lenart ( назад)
@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 ?

What fabulous voices! What engaging music! Such a pleasure to listen to.

Автор Masicians ( назад)
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 singer (from Madagascar) in a "Conservatoire Supérieur" in France and I hope, one day, I will have the voice to sing Porgy's role.
One of my dreams....

The highest form of art. Incredibly beautiful.

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!

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.

+1 about that.
for me, this is the best version of this unbelievable opera, thanks to Willard White & Cynthia Haymon for their brilliant performance here.
now....Shhhh ! just listen & enjoy ....

Perhaps the definitive treatment of Gershwin's tale of love and loss, this particular performance never fails to make me tear up. Such remarkable performances.

Porgy and Bess is truly the great American Opera.

Just fantastic! Looking forward to see and hear Porgy & Bess myself in the new Oslo Operahouse and the guest performance from Cape Town Opera in August!

Ah Willard White...a friend of my Mummy...Mum says he was great as a student at the Jamaica School of Music in Kingston, Jamaica.

It ain't surprising that given such glorious singing from two singers with magical and heavenly voices in this beautiful opera of Gershwin, both Willard and Haymon, when they performed this at Glynbourne, the bourgeoisie black-tie audience there was reduced to helpless tears. Watching this made me do the same. Some more please. SD Goh (Malaysia)

Автор Yanipooh ( назад)
i watch this like everyday...how pathetic of me

Автор beaugarsNYC ( назад)
I'm CRAZY for this song now! Would you believe that it was Lainie Kazan's version that introduced me to this? After more searching on here, I came up with this version, which has left me spellbound. I "loves" you, Cynthia and Willard!!

Автор ChaseOnMars ( назад)
The vocal performances are absolute perfection! So beautiful, the way the song builds up to (4:15) the 'morningtime and eveningtime's, with the 'hhmmmm's, and the kiss, and time stops completely until the last note a minute and a half later. Just great.

Автор Paolo Reyes ( назад)
my heart soars when I hear this specific performance, then I get goosebumps! oh man freaking brilliant!

Автор elvenlove ( назад)
Cynthia Haymon is currently a professor at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. Hurray for the Midwest!

Beautiful beyond words. I have loved this duet and opera since I was a child. Gershwin gave us a taste of the sounds of Heaven!

Ahhhhhh heaven

One of the most powerful, enchanting duets ever to grace our ears and our souls.
