Rhapsody In Blue


SKU: MMC-2001



In this album, his first in 2000, Mr. Pandolfi has put together an exquisite musical treat for fans old and new. Emile has taken these well-loved Gershwin pieces and given each one a new lease on life. I’ve Got Rhythm sparkles with playfulness and fun, They Can’t Take That Away From Me stirs the heart. And, in a departure from his solo work, Mr. Pandolfi, accompanied by the Atlanta Pops Orchestra, does a masterful job of bringing new spirit to Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue. This album is a treasure!

About the Pianist

With almost thirty recordings in his own discography, Emile Pandolfi ranks among America’s most popular piano artists. With the majority of his performance repertoire being lush, intricate arrangements of Broadway and standards that form the canon of "The Great American Songbook", his influences are, in fact, more classical than pop. And it is this subjective layering of classical style that Pandolfi infuses onto the broad palette of selections performed in his frequent concerts that resonates with audiences everywhere.
