This week on ‘A Little Night Music’ Kathleen Kajioka takes a closer look at George Gershwin.
Born of parents fleeing anti-Jewish sentiment in Russia, Gershwin would grow up to found a truly American musical sound. While his effortless crossing of boundaries between Classical and Popular music aroused scorn from the critics, that very fluidity was his genius. And with an endless list of indelible songs from Fascinating Rhythm to s’Wonderful to Summertime, he strength of his legacy cannot be denied!
Tune in to “A Little Night Music” every night this week, just after 8 o’clock.
