Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue by Anna Harwell Celenza
Listen to klezmer, foxtrot, ragtime, and blues while learning about Gershwin’s process and struggle in creating a love song for New York that defined American music. We will also be listening to a recording of “Rhapsody in Blue” performed by Gershwin and the Columbia Jazz Band in 1925.
From the seventeenth century to the twenty-first, through fiction and through fact, hear tales of NYC and the people who made it great.
