One One Day University. George Gershwin and American Music

One Day University. George Gershwin and American Music

Lecturer:    Orin Grossman – Fairfield University

A high-school drop-out, George Gershwin wrote his first major hit song, “Swanee,” at the age of 19. At the age of 25, he composed his first and perhaps most popular concert piece, “Rhapsody in Blue.”

Using this masterwork as a point of reference, this lecture will demonstrate just how Gershwin melded the classical and the contemporary. By examining the musical influences of this American music icon, we gain insight into the multicultural nature of American musical traditions and the genius of one of our greatest composers.
