Marc-André Hamelin: Gershwin Concerto in F


Marc-André Hamelin: Gershwin Concerto in F with the Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, with Leonard Slatkin at the podium. (This is a Dutch radio orchestra, based in Hilversum, which gives public concerts in Amsterdam and Utrecht.) This piece captures the zeitgeist of America of the time it was written, in 1925, by George Gershwin: The Jazz Age of the 1920s and '30s. Gershwin, a talented composer, died in 1937 at the age of 38.
