An American Composer and Pianist
Rhapsody in Blue
"From Gershwin emanated a new American music not written with the ruthlessness of one who strives to demolish established rules but based on a new native gusto and wit and awareness. His was a modernity that reflected the civilization we live in as excitingly as the headline in today's newspaper." -Ira Gershwin 1938
