"A man writes a piece of music which he considers serious but which is pretty awful; he labels his work 'classic', and an unsuspecting public accepts his label. Labels mean nothing at all. Good music is good music, even if you call it 'oysters'." To Gershwin, show tunes were as important as his concert works, and he saw no contradiction in writing both. The pianist Jack Gibbons follows Gershwin's development as a composer and reveals the close stylistic relationship between the works for Broadway, Hollywood and the concert hall. With illustrations at the keyboard and from original recordings. With Ben Kingsley as George Gershwin. Revised repeat
