Program Notes

George Gershwin is legendary in the world of American music, both in popular and classical genres. This medley includes I Got Rhythm and Embraceable You as well as symphonic works such as An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue, Summertime from the opera Porgy and Bess, and the seldom-heard Piano Prelude No. 2. It's time to "Strike Up the Band!"
