Happy Birthday, George Gershwin!


recommended by Barb M., Keyboard and Folk Music Specialist

The collection “Gershwin at the Keyboard” contains eighteen hit songs arranged by George Gershwin. His songs and piano pieces have been mainstays of the American music scene since they were written. This collection contains his first national hit, “Swanee,” and seventeen more arrangements of Broadway tunes. The pieces are written on an advanced level. Other Gershwin piano compositions you might enjoy include his “Three Preludes” and “Rhapsody in Blue.” Happy Birthday, George Gershwin (September 26, 1898)!
