$ 16.98

American composer George Gershwin has been established in the pantheon of great
American composers through his compositions and operas. Few music lovers realize
that Gershwin only lived a short thirty-eight years. The volume of music he created
leads many to believe that he lived much longer. This recording features arrangements
of some of Gershwin’s most popular symphonic works and highlights many of his
best-known songs. Recorded by the endlessly talented United States Army Concert
Band, Gershwin contains important works like Summertime, An American in Paris,
and Rhapsody in Blue. Colonel Thomas Rotondi, Jr. leads the band on this album,
a commemorative display of some of America’s favorite music. Each track is played
beautifully with great attention to detail, just the way George Gershwin wrote them.
Total Time: 1 hour 9 minutes
