A CLASSIC AMERICAN - George Gershwin
George Gershwin was born in Brooklyn in 1898. He began his musical career as a song-plugger on Tin Pan Alley, and published his first song, “When You Want ‘Em, You Can’t Get ‘Em,” which earned him five dollars. Soon after, he co-composed “Swanee”, which sold more than a million copies. In 1924, George collaborated with his brother, lyricist Ira Gershwin, to write musicals including “Funny Face”. At the age of 25, his jazz-influenced “Rhapsody in Blue” premiered in New York’s Aeolian Hall at the concert, “An Experiment in Music”. He followed this success with his orchestral work “Piano Concerto in F, Rhapsody No. 2″ and “An American in Paris”. Serious music critics were often critical of his efforts but the general public loved his work. In 1937, after many successes on Broadway, the brothers decided go to Hollywood. They reunited with Fred Astaire and made the musical film, “Shall We Dance”, which included such hits as “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me.” Soon after came “A Damsel in Distress”. George took ill soon after, and died at the age of 38 of a brain tumor.
