The Gershwins' musical masterpiece Porgy and Bess is one of America's greatest works. This production was adapted for the screen by Trevor Nunn and Yves Baigneres. It was directed by Trevor Nunn and is based on his highly successful staging of the original Glyndebourne Festival Opera production in 1986/87, which was remounted at Covent Garden in the autumn of 1992 with most of the original cast. Immediately after that performance the production was moved to the giant stage at Shepperton Studios, with much expanded sets and lighting. It was then recorded using EMI's original award-winning soundtrack. First performed in 1935, and based on the play "Porgy" by DuBose and Dorothy K. Heyward, Porgy and Bess has achieved worldwide renown through such memorable songs as "Summertime", "It ain't necessarily so", "I got plenty o' nuttin", "O Lawd, I'm on my way" and many more, set to Gershwin's moving symphonic score. - Container
Concerto in F for piano and orchestra by George Gershwin( )

111 editions published between 1927 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1924, American conductor Walter Damrosch visited the famous premiere concert of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue in which the composer himself performed the piano solo. The day after the concert, Damrosch contacted Gershwin to commission from him a full-scale piano concerto for the New York Symphony Orchestra, closer in form to a classical concerto and orchestrated by the composer. Despite being very busy with three different Broadway musicals, Gershwin was able to complete the full orchestration of the concerto on November 10, 1925. Later that month, Gershwin hired a 55-piece orchestra, at his own expense, to run through his first draft at the Globe Theatre. Damrosch attended and gave advice to Gershwin, who made a few cuts and revisions. The Concerto in F shows considerable development in Gershwin's compositional technique, particularly because he orchestrated the entire work himself. The English composer and orchestrator William Walton commented that he adored Gershwin's orchestration of the concerto. The concerto is in the traditional three movements: Allegro, Adagio - Andante con moto and Allegro agitato. There are strong thematic links between the three movements, all of which are heavily influenced by jazz. However, there exists, in each movement, a very subtle structural integrity that, while perhaps not immediately apparent to the listener, is rooted in the classical tradition. The work was premiered by the New York Symphony Orchestra (three years later the orchestra would merge with the Philharmonic Symphony Society into the New York Philharmonic Orchestra) with Damrosch conducting at Carnegie Hall in New York on December 3, 1925, and featured the composer as the soloist. The concert was sold out and the concerto was very well received by the general public. Uruguayan arranger Martin Jorge transcribed the complete concerto for piano with accompaniment of a Symphonic Wind Orchestra
