When I was about 11 years old I listened to a tape of George Gershwin on a bike trip around Europe. Thus began my life-long infatuation with one of my favorite composers. When I play solo piano, I always try to incorporate as much Gershwin as possible! Of course, I love all the great American songbook writers–from Irving Berlin to Cole Porter and yes, even some of the modern greats. But there is something about Gershwin…
And so, here is my solo piano recording of some of Gershwin classics, arranged into a medley. My interpretations of these songs tend to vary each time I play them… I hope you enjoy these renditions!
