Gershwin: Porgy and Bess “One of the most important opera recordings of recent years” was Opera magazine’s verdict on this Porgy and Bess, which immortalised Glyndebourne Festival Opera’s first-ever production of Gershwin’s masterpiece. “Simon Rattle treats Porgy as one of the great opera scores of the 20th century … the entire performance bristles with a theatrical immediacy … The cast is a great one, led by Willard White, a dark-voiced, dignified, ultimately noble Porgy … and Cynthia Haymon’s lustrous Bess ... This is a great souvenir of a great Glyndebourne event.”

Sir Simon Rattle is an English coductor who rose to international prominence during the 1980s and 1990s while Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.  He became principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic in 2002.

The Berlin Philharmonic was founded in 1882 and is consistently ranked as one of the best orchestras inthe world.
