An American Classic

March 18, 2013

Perhaps no twentieth century composer was more American than George Gershwin. Sadly taken by cancer in his thirties, he still managed to compose some works of pure genius. The piece below, An American in Paris, is undoubtedly one of his best. This version is by America’s foremost Gershwin orchestra and best Gershwin conductor, the New York Philharmonic and Leonard Bernstein.
