Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Schneider (music, Univ. of Vermont) has compiled an eclectic mix of essays on the music of American composer George Gershwin that admirably completes Steven Gilbert's Music of Gershwin (LJ 12/95), one of the few recent monographs to focus on Gershwin's compositional style rather than his life. Contributors include Gershwin biographer Edward Jablonski, popular music culture scholar Charles Hamm, and Gilbert himself. Whereas Gilbert in his earlier volume applied an analytical approach to the entire Gershwin oeuvre, the writers in Schneider's book treat specific works and also delve into more diverse topics, such as Gershwin's influence on later pop/rock music, the making of the film Rhapsody in Blue, and the development of the piano roll industry. The discourse is elevated throughout but not inaccessible for those with the requisite musical background. Recommended for academic and larger public music collections.?Barry Zaslow, Miami Univ.
