The Gershwin Style

New Looks at the Music of George Gershwin

Edited by Wayne Schneider

One of America's most popular yet least appreciated composers, Gershwin is revered for his wonderful pop songs, a few instrumental works, and the opera Porgy and Bess. But most of his music is virtually unknown; hundreds of compositions, show tunes, and even several large and important instrumental works are gradually fading with the generations that first heard them. This outstanding new book collects the work of several authorities on Gershwin and/or American music generally, among them Wayne Shirley, Charles Hamm, Edward Jablonski, and Artis Wodehouse (who has transcribed most of Gershwin's piano performances).
