 Vocal Selections

George Gershwin wrote primarily for the Broadway musical theatre, but important as well are his orchestral and piano compositions in which he blended the techniques and forms of classical music with the stylistic nuances and techniques of popular music and jazz.

Rhapsody in Blue incorporates trademarks of the jazz idiom into a symphonic context. The work is perhaps the most-performed and most-recorded orchestral composition of the 20th Century. An American in Paris represents Gershwin’s employment of both jazz and classical forms, the harmonic structure rooted in blues traditions.
