Gershwin at the Keys

George Gershwin lets his fingers fly in a rare film performance from the mid-1930s.

As a boy born in Brooklyn in 1898 George Gershwin didn't display a shred of interest in music until he was ten, after attending his friend Maxie Rosenzweig's violin recital.

Childhood piano lessons would lead him to Charles Hambitzer who served as a musical mentor until his death in 1918.

After Hambitzer, Gershwin studied with classical composer Rubin Goldmark and avant-garde composer-theorist Henry Cowell.

Going on to become an immensely popular American pianist and composer of the 1920s and '30s his best known works include "Rhapsody in Blue" (1924), "An American in Paris" (1928), and the opera "Porgy and Bess" (1935).

Check out our fascinating in depth discussion of the life and music of George Gershwin with Richie Gerber, author of "Jazz America's Gift"
