Gershwin Remembered

Gershwin Remembered

by EdwardJablonski (Author)


Gershwin is one of the few composers whose music has been appropriated by popular and serious music-lovers alike. Gershwin was greatly influenced by contemporary composers Ravel, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, and though best known for his superb hit musicals Lady Be Good , Oh, Kay! and Girl Crazy he could write with equal conviction for the concert hall and opera house. This collection of writings is gathered from every era of Gershwin's career, from boyhood to the Hollywood years. Amongst others, Gershwin is remembered by Osbert Sitwell, Oscar Levant, Richard Rodgers, Serge Koussevitzky, Schoenberg and his brother, Ira Gershwin.
