George Gershwin

American composer and pianist, George Gershwin (1898-1937) was one of the most significant and popular American composers of all time.

The melodies from George Gershwin’s (1898-1937) musicals, from ‘Porgy and Bess’, from orchestral pieces like ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ or ‘An American in Paris’, we all know them! But the career of the young musician started as a pianist in a music publishing house where he was to encourage customers to buy music by playing it.

Soon he began to compose music himself and caught the attention of Broadway, which paved the way to his international career.

He predominantly wrote for piano, orchestra and Broadway Musical Theatre, combining classical music with popular music and jazz idioms. His most popular works include Rhapsody in Blue, Porgy and Bess, Summertime, An American in Paris, I Got Rhythm, Someone to Watch Over Me, Piano Concerto in F and The Man I Love amongst a vast array of other incredible works.

Bill Holcombe (1924-2010)

Bill Holcombe was a renowned flautist, composer, and arranger. He pursued flute studies at the Juilliard School in New York and obtained a degree in musicology from the University of Pennsylvania.

As a composer and arranger, Bill collaborated with esteemed musicians and groups, such as Tommy Dorsey, 101 Strings, Peter Nero, and over 100 symphony orchestras internationally. He also composed music for more than 15 film scores.

In 1975, he founded his own company, Bill Holcombe’s Musicians Publications. Bill wrote and edited several hundred pieces for chamber ensembles, developed a highly regarded series of jazz etude books, and guided his company to become a prominent small American music publisher.

During the early stages of his career, Bill demonstrated his talent as a versatile woodwind player. He performed with Tommy Dorsey, Tex Beneke, Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians, and the New York radio station WMGM “Theatre of the Air.” He also served as a member of the Decca Records staff.
