Composer's Collection: George Gershwin


Visit 2013 Midwest Clinic Page

The GIA Composers Collection brings together recordings of the master- works of the most respected composers of all time. Stunningly performed by the North Texas Wind Symphony under the direction of Eugene Corporon, this series also includes extensive liner notes about each composer and his or her contribution to the wind band.

George Gershwin (1898–1937) is recognized as one of America’s best-known composers, often mentioned in the same breath as Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein. In Bernstein’s words: “Gershwin was certainly one of the true authentic geniuses American music has ever produced. Time and history may even show him to be the truest and most authentic of his time and place.”

This incredible recording features the North Texas Wind Symphony, under the direction of Eugene Migliaro Corporon, performing his most beloved works, including Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris. This recording is a wonderful tribute to Gershwin’s genius and a true musical treasure.

Contents: Cuban Overture (1932), Rhapsody in Blue (1924), An American in Paris (1928), Porgy and Bess: A Symphonic Picture (1943), Promenade: Walking the Dog (1937), Three Preludes (1926), Strike Up the Band (Overture) (1927).
