The man I love
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The man I love (1944) is a concert arrangement of Gershwin’s own piano transcription. Grainger held that this was one of the greatest songs of all time and should take its place in immortality alongside the finest love-songs by Dowland, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Fauré, Duparc, Hatton, Maude Valérie White, Cyril Scott, Roger Quilter, Debussy and John Alden Carpenter. He went further by commenting that the opening phrase of Gershwin’s melody is indebted to a fragment from the slow movement of Grieg’s Violin Sonata in C minor, considering this as ‘a sign of genius in a composer to base his procedures upon an older, original composer.’
