This week: George Gershwin.
Born of parents fleeing anti-Jewish sentiment in Russia, Gershwin would grow up to found a truly American musical sound. While his effortless crossing of boundaries between Classical and Popular music aroused scorn from the critics, that very fluidity was his genius. And with an endless list of indelible songs from Fascinating Rhythm to s’Wonderful to Summertime, the strength of his legacy cannot be denied!
Tune in to “A Little Night Music’ weeknights at 7pm.
