About

Following their extraordinary debut at the BBC Proms in 2009, John Wilson and his hand-picked orchestra have established a well-earned reputation as THE modern interpreters of the Hollywood musical, regularly garnering rave reviews for their live performances at the Proms and around the UK, as well as their recordings since signing an exclusive contract with this label in early 2011.

For this latest release, Warner Classics is proud to present Gershwin in Hollywood, recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall, at the culmination of this extraordinary orchestra’s sell-out UK tour in 2015. It includes well-known Gershwin favourites of the American Songbook, such as How Long Has This Been Going On?, The Man I Love, ’S Wonderful and They Can’t Take That Away From Me, as well as rarely recorded gems like Slap That Bass, Treat Me Rough, and the majestic orchestral Overture from the film Rhapsody in Blue. With superb vocals from regular JWO guests Matt Ford and Louise Dearman, and the rich orchestral sound so evocative of Hollywood’s Golden Age, all under the direction of John Wilson, this album captures the thrilling atmosphere of a night to remember.
