Gershwin, George

George Gershwin was one of the most important and influential American composers of all time. He composed mostly for the Broadway musical theatre, but his orchestral and piano works are often significant in which he combined the techniques and forms of classical music with the stylistic complexities and techniques of modern music and jazz to varying degrees. George Gershwin wrote several famous songs for his lyricist brother Ira (such as "Embraceable You" and "They Can't Take That Away from Me"), whole Broadway musicals, and the Porgy and Bess folk opera. He wrote several significant and famous chamber and orchestral pieces, including Maurice Ravel and Sergey Prokofiev, that were praised by classical composers. In both modern and classical genres, George Gershwin is significant for his great creativity as a melodist, and for his chamber as well as orchestral works that elaborately combine the styles and techniques of classical music with components of famous song and jazz.
