Happy Birthday George Gershwin (September 26, 1898 – July 11, 1937).
George Gershwin was an American composer and pianist who contributed music to the classical and popular music genres. He was born Jacob Gershowitz in Brooklyn, New York to Russian Jewish immigrant parents. George made most of his works with his lyricist brother Ira Gershwin. Gershwin composed both for Broadway and for the classical concert hall. He also wrote popular songs with success. Many of his compositions have been used in cinema, and many are famous jazz standards. Some famous pieces by Gershwin that you may already be familiar with are "An American in Paris" and "Rhapsody in Blue".
My all time favorite musical composition by George Gershwin is Porgy and Bess. What is your most favorite George Gershwin song?
