Gershwin Documentary

https://youtu.be/FHmu7tUhRVA

Sherway Academy of Music

Gershwin studied piano under Charles Hambitzer and composition with Rubin Goldmark, Henry Cowell and Joseph Brody. He began his career as a song plugger, but soon started composing Broadway theatre works with his brother Ira Gershwin, and Buddy DeSylva. He moved to Paris intending to study with Nadia Boulanger, who refused him, where he subsequently composed An American in Paris. After returning to New York City, he wrote Porgy and Bess, with Ira, and the author DuBose Heyward. Initially a commercial failure, Porgy and Bess later went on to be considered one of the most important American operas of the Twentieth century, and an American cultural classic.

Outstanding philharmonic music never fails.

All we need is to sit down, dreaming the tune.

True music must repeat the thought and inspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans and my time is today.

I LIKE THIS AMAZING QUOTE AS WELL!

"The composer does not sit around and wait for an inspiration to walk up and introduce itself… Making music is actually little else than a matter of invention aided and abetted by emotion. In composing we combine what we know of music with what we feel."
