The complete published works by Gershwin are quite extraordinary for their invention. His jazz bubbles over with clever ideas for piano (Gershwin was, after all, a true virtuoso of the piano). His compositions have an abundance of colours and genres that blend, bind and burst into new and spacious musical language.
Young talent, Maurizio Zaccaria (AEVEA AE16003 | Jules Massenet: Integrale Piano Works), plays with a secure and natural touch. The CD - and also the album in HD 88.2/24-bits - includes the transcriptions of the Gershwin' Songs (18), the Three Preludes, the Uncategorised Preludes, the pianistic transcription (by the composer) of the famous 'Rhapsody in Blue', the innovative (Double) Waltzes, and some other pieces, including original transcriptions from 'Porgy and Bess', 'Shall We Dance', and 'Rosalie'.
The recording is fully natural with no mastering additions, made with 4 microphones (2 close, 2 far).


Pianist Maurizio Zaccaria hat es gewagt und erfol greich die Stimmung, ja das typisch ame- rikanische bensgefühl der George Gershwin 1920er Jahre ein Gershwin's Songbook, gefangen. ‐Isabel Fedrizzi (01/05/2017) 

Maurizio Zaccaria nimmt vom ersten Titel an für sich ein durch eine pianistisch hochran- gige und ebenso fantasievoll sensible wie locker überlegene Vortragsart. ‐Ingo Harden 4,5/5 (01/09/2017) 

Zaccaria plays all this music with plenty of skill. [...] The consistency of these pianists’ performances is truly remarkable. ‐ infodad.com ++++/4 (22/07/2017) 

The recording quality is excellent - as is usually the case with Aevea releases, - the piano shines with clarity and depth of tone. Maurizio Zaccaria has a clean and controlled touch on the keyboard. ‐Roger McCuaig (01/06/2017)
