George Gershwin - Prelude no. 1


This is my very first George Gershwin piece, and I had lots of fun playing this one. :) For those who have no idea who Gershwin is, he is an American known as a contemporary classical composer, but he fits in the borderline between classical and jazz. This is one of his most well-known preludes. He is also known for his Rhapsody in Blue. I played this piece (including two other pieces) for a scholarship competition called the Stillman-Kelley Competition, where I my CD recording was competing with 23 other states. Just couple days ago, I found out that I got 2nd place in this competition and received $500! :) ENJOY!
