Book summary

The early twentieth century was a wonderful time for American music, and George Gershwin was the most gifted composer of that era. Songs such as "Summertime" and "Someone to Watch Over Me" continue to enchant listeners and performers. His Rhapsody in Blue is still performed around the world and Porgy and Bess, written near the end of his tragically short life, was the first successful use of traditional American music in an opera.
