Program Notes

Despite Gershwin's new-found reputation as a "serious composer," it was song writing that was the foundation of his popularity. I Got Rhythm, Our Love is Here to Stay, Embraceable You, Someone to Watch Over Me, and They Can’t Take That Away From Me were composed between 1926 and 1937 for the Broadway shows Girl Crazy and Oh, Kay! and film scores Shall We Dance and The Goldwyn Follies. These selections highlight Gershwin's creative genius and make up the medley Fascinatin' Gershwin.
