Program Notes

Little background information is available with regard to the recently discovered early score of George Gershwin entitled simply Japanese. We do know that in all probability it was written about 1918, and that the tune was reworked (cast in 6/8 meter) by Gershwin as the refrain for the song The Love of a Woman (words by B.G. DeSylvia and Arthur J. Jackson) from his first Broadway musical score, La La Lucille (1919).
