Rhapsody in Blue


George Gershiwn's Rhapsody in Blue  was written in 1924 for piano and jazz band and combines classical music with jazz. Commissioned by bandleader Paul Whiteman, it was premiered in a concert entitled "An Experiment in Modern Music" at the Aeolian Hall, New York where Whiteman's band accompanied Gershwin at the piano. Probably the most recognised of his works, it began a new era in American music.


This adaptation for brass quintet takes some of the most recognisable themes.
