Format: Sheet music
This is a truly wonderful collection for everyone from beginner to advanced musician. It contains many of Gershwins popular works, but also the full score of Rhapsody in Blue. I recommend this collection to all wanting to learn about the great master and his music, regardless of your current level of play.

Format: Kindle Edition
This fresh and intriguing collection was actually the idea of George W. Cooke,
editor-in-chief of the University Society of New York City and Midland Park, NJ.
He researched the sources, selected the compositions, obtained copyright permissions,
uncovered historic photographs in the Lincoln Center Library. He wrote the
introduction to the book and the notes appearing before each composition.
and commissioned Adrian Rappin to design the cover with
an original painting. In his "colletivist" phase, he gave credit for
the work to his entire editorial team, although the work was essentially
his. The discography at the end of the
book was prepared by one of his editors. He later sold reprint rights
to Warner Bros. Music, and that company printed both hardcover and paperback
editions. This is an oversize 9" x 12" volume (hardcover) printed on very
heavy 60 lb. book paper manufactured by the Warren Paper Company of Boston, MA,
and is Smyth sewn. The book was printed
in Reno, Nevada, by the George Banta Co. The strong, durable
cover is of specially coated DuPont Tyvek (spun olefin) manufactured by the Wyomising
Corporation of Reading, PA and the artist's colors are protected by a coat of clear
lacquer applied in San Francisco, CA. The book has matching headbands
with 80 lb. antique lemon yellow endsheets by Process Materials Corp. of Cardstadt, NJ.
The titles are die stamped in foil on cover and spine.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Lola Jo Moss on April 9, 2014
Format: Sheet music Verified Purchase
If you don't know anything about Gershwin's role in American musical history, both popular and classical, this is a useful book. It comprises a small collection of his songs and a somewhat broader selection of his classical piano music. The songs are within the ability of most pianists of average competence; the classical pieces are much more difficult. I would have preferred two volumes that separated the genres, with a more comprehensive selection in each. (One annoying issue: The binding of the book is very stiff and it's difficult to keep it open on the music desk.)

If you like Gershwin's music, you'll love this book! It has some of his best classical piano music as well as some of his vocal tunes, complete with vocal score and accompaniment. This book provides real pictures of Gershwin and interesting information on many of his songs. These are real classical/pop/jazz cross-over tunes and a fun book!

My mother purchased this book for me many years ago, and it is still in print! My students love it! This is a GREAT price for a book such as this.
