  • Program Notes

    Rhapsody in Blue

    George Gershwin, 1898-1937

    George Gershwin was born in Brooklyn in 1898 to Russian immigrant parents.

    He and his siblings were immersed in music from an early age, and he wrote his

    first published song at age 17. George and his brother Ira collaborated on several

    musical comedies, among them Lady Be Good, Funny Face and Of Thee I Sing, which

    won a Pulitzer Prize in 1931. In 1924 Gershwin composed his most popular

    work, Rhapsody in Blue, which premiered in New York City with Paul Whitemans

    bandGershwin at the piano. This work defies classification because it contains

    elements of pop, classical and jazz music. Gershwins strength was in melody, not

    structure, which led Leonard Bernstein to say of Rhapsody that it was not a

    composition at all (but) a string of terrific tunes stuck together with a

    thin paste of flour and water. However, it is an original, exciting piece that

    reflects the confidence and energy of the Roaring Twenties. Gershwin died in

    1937 of a brain tumor. He never lived to see the impact Rhapsody had on serious

    classical music composers such as Ravel and Stravinsky, who explored jazz in

    their works, or pop composers who experimented with classical forms.

    The Raymonda Suite from the ballet Raymonda

    Aleksandr Glazunov, 1865-1936

    Glazunov, Russian composer, music teacher and conductor, was born in St.

    Petersberg, the son of a wealthy publisher. He studied under Rimsky-Korsakov

    and wrote his first compositions at an early age. For many years, he taught at the

    St. Petersberg Conservatory and became its director. Glazunov had a

    phenomenal memory and astounded fellow musicians because of his ability to

    play whole symphonies after hearing them only one time. During his most

  • creative period, he composed the stately and melodic full-length ballet Raymonda,

    which premiered in 1898. Glazunov eventually settled in Paris after touring the

    United States and Europe. He died at age 70, having enjoyed international

    acclaim for most of his career. Raymonda is a story of a young couple separated by

    noble knight, Jean de Briennes commitment
