Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
George Gershwin was given to writing his orchestral pieces for piano and orchestrating them later. This Promenade was originally intended for the ‘walking the dog’ sequence in the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers film, Shall we Dance? in 1936, and is Gershwin’s last instrumental composition.
