This week we revisit one of my favorite episodes from Season 2, all about the life and music of the great American composer, George Gershwin! We'll explore his childhood growing up in New York, Tin Pan Alley, and whether Gershwin was a Jazz or Classical composer. We'll also take a closer look at three of his most well-known pieces, his Rhapsody in Blue, Concerto in F, and his controversial opera, Porgy and Bess. Next week, we'll be back with an exploration of Sibelius' 5th Symphony, so don't miss it! Thanks so much for listening!
