The Brothers Gershwin

composer
based on various themes by George Gershwin; first performance in 1998

 
The Canadian conductor, composer and arranger Howard Cable has been a leading figure in musical life across the Atlantic for over 50 years, his work ranging from arrangements of Broadway musicals, and film scores for stars like Danny Kaye, to regular guest conducting with all the Canadian Symphony Orchestras. This tribute to George Gershwin and his lyricist brother Ira takes the form of a medley of some of their most popular numbers: ‘I got rhythm’, ‘Love walked in’, ‘Oh! Lady be good’, ‘Fascinating rhythm’, ‘Embraceable you’, ‘S’Wonderful’, ‘The man I love’ and ‘Of thee I sing’—with a hint of Rhapsody in Blue thrown in for good measure. It was originally conceived for organ and orchestra, and first performed by Simon Preston with the Calgary Philharmonic at a Pops Concert in Canada in 1998.
