Eric Himy, pianist, performs the recently restored version of Rhapsody in Blue from Gershwin's handwritten score, including 88 measures that most pianists exclude from public performances. The New York Times has described Eric Himy's playing as “flawlessly poised with elegance and brilliance” with his compelling artistry reaching five to continents. His technique has been compared recently by the 2007 Revue Musicale de Suisse Romande to that of the legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz and called him “a sensual gourmand of sound.”
