Gershwin 3 Preludes for Flute & Piano

Publisher-Edition Schott


Inspired by Frédéric Chopin’s 24 Préludes, he began to write his own ‘Preludes’ for the piano in the mid-1920s: Of the five preludes composed by him, he used two for the violin composition ‘Short Story’ and presented the other three at a concert on 4 December 1926. These ‘Preludes’ combine classical moments and jazz elements and can be played individually or as a miniature jazz sonata (fast – slow – fast).

Thanks to the present arrangement, the charming miniatures are now available in a version for solo instrument and piano accompaniment.

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 for 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.
