George Gershwin: You’ve Got What Gets Me

George Gershwin: You’ve Got What Gets Me

In George Gershwin’s short 38 years, he and his brother Ira created dozens of the most beloved songs of all time, forever changing the sensibilities of the writers who came after.

In this same way, he was influenced by 20th century classical composers like Debussy and Ravel. Distilling his symphonic classical grandeur, the sounds of 1920s Harlem, and the style of Tin Pan Alley into new virtuoso arrangements for two pianos, joined by a cast of versatile performers, we explore this evolution from classical to opera to jazz and beyond.
