George Gershwin's popular songs and symphonic works have made him one of America's most beloved composers. Despite his achievements, much of his creative output--nearly 300 published and almost as many unpublished compositions--remains unknown and unheard. A Gershwin Companion is the first publication to provide a systematic guide to Gershwin's published works, as well as landmark inventory of some 2,000 Gershwin-related recordings. This volume includes extensive descriptions of the compositions, along with critical commentary and analysis. Each entry contains the song title, lyricist, key, time signature, tempo, how the song was introduced and by whom, information on how a particular song came to be written, together with remarks and anecdotes from individuals connected with it.About the Author:
