Program Notes

Walking the Dog (1937) is one of many musical numbers written by George Gershwin for the film score to the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers film Shall We Dance. In the movie, the music accompanies a sequence of walking a dog on board a luxury liner. In 1960, the sequence was published as Promenade. Most of the score from the film (composed and orchestrated by Gershwin) remains unpublished and unavailable in modern stereo recordings.
