Rhapsody in Blue Gershwin Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
The Midi version is a very short excerpt from Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, as a duet between clarinet and piano. The mp3 version is the full work, performed by piano and orchestra, effectively as a sort of concerto in one movement. The actual ochestral part-writing for this was not done by Gershwin, but by Ferde Grofé, a professional arranger who usually wrote for the big band. The well-known opening bars contain a short trill then a famous slide up the scale on the clarinet.
