A rhapsody in blue : the extraordinary life of Oscar Levant by Oscar Levant( )

7 editions published in 2018 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the height of his popularity, Oscar Levant was the highest-paid concert artist in America. He outdrew Horowitz and Rubinstein, with whom he shared the distinction of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He performed under conductors including Toscanini, Beecham, Mitropoulos, Reiner and Ormandy, and was the definitive interpreter of his friend George Gershwin. Levant's 1945 recording of Rhapsody in Blue remained one of Columbia Records' best-selling albums for decades. That classic interpretation and all his other recordings for the label, spanning the years 1942-1958, have now been collected in this set: painstakingly restored and remastered from the original analogue discs and tapes, the vast majority of them are appearing for the first time ever on CD. The 124-page book contains a biographical essay by George Gershwin and Oscar Levant scholar Michael Feinstein, a wealth of photos and facsimiles including a gallery of Alex Steinweiss album covers, as well as a complete recording session and release discography
