This collection includes favourites such as Summertime, and excerpts from Porgy and Bess, as well as interesting rarities. The artist has been able to complete the Manuscript of Novelette in Fourths by listening to piano roll performance by Gershwin himself and performs the work here together with Melody N. 7 & Sleepless Night. Gershwin, George (1898-1937). Gershwin: An American in Paris, tone poem. Gershwin: Porgy and Bess (highlights).
An American in Paris. Composer(s): George Gershwin (1898-1937). Ms. Lewis-Griffith performs Melody No. 17 and Sleepless Night exactly as they were written in those manuscripts. They are actually variants of one another; Gershwin’s close friend, Kay Swift, rearranged Melody No. 17 and called it Sleepless Night. The artist plays the two pieces without a break as one work. 1. artists: 'Dorothy Lewis-Griffith' composers: 'George Gershwin (1898-1937)'. Novelette in Fourths.

2. An American in Paris - George Gershwin. Lullaby for Strings - George Gershwin. I was fortunate to study with Dorothy Lewis-Griffith during a summer when she was a visiting piano instructor at my university. I doubt if she would remember me but her musicianship and the memories have remained with me ever since. To anyone who has an appreciation of Gershwin this album is a must. These two dates are special and belong in any music lovers listening rotation.
