Summertime Zusammenfassung

Summertime: George Gershwin's Life in Music Richard Crawford (University of Michigan)

George Gershwin blossomed as an accompanist before his talent as a songwriter opened the way to Broadway where he fashioned his own brand of American music. He composed a run of musical comedies, with his brother Ira as lyricist, and several classical works while he became a favoured guest in New York social circles. His 1924 Rhapsody in Blue was an instant classic rooted in his absorption of African American music. A decade later came Porgy and Bess, his magnum opus. The brothers left New York to write songs for Hollywood-but their work was cut short when George developed a brain tumour and died at thirty-eight.

Richard Crawford traces the arc of Gershwin's remarkable life, seamlessly blending colourful anecdotes with a discussion of Gershwin's unforgettable oeuvre.

Summertime Bewertungen

The author offers many such evocative descriptions in his scholarly account of Gershwin's tragically short life. The works are covered in exhaustive detail, with in-depth analysis, plots and character summaries... -- The Economist
