Three Preludes, George Gershwin
Performed by Miguel Sousa

George Gershwin (1898 --1937) was na american pianista and composer.
He had a few piano teachers, but his main professor was Charles Hambitzer, who introduced him to classical music. Also he studied with Rubin Goldmark and Henry Cowell.
Gershwin stayed in Paris for a short period of time during which he applied to study composition with the famous instructor Nadia Boulanger. He admired Debussy and Ravel, as we find their influences in Gershwin's music. Growing tired of the Parisian musical scene, Gershwin returned to the United States.
He was a composer with an extreme ability to manipulate forms of music into his own unique voice, mixing american music popular as jazz into the «classical style». Some his works includes Rhapsody in Blue, an American in Paris, and the opera Porg and Bessy.
