MINI-SCORE
Rhapsody in Blue is a musical composition by George Gershwin for solo piano and jazz band written in 1924, which combines elements of classical music with jazz-influenced effects. Rhapsody in blue is regarded as one of Gershwin's most recognizable creations and as a key composition which defined the historical period known as the ‘Jazz Age’. The editors of the Cambridge Music Handbooks have posited that Rhapsody in Blue (1924) established Gershwin's reputation as a serious composer and has since become one of the most popular of all American concert works.
Dutch arranger Erik Somers transcribed the 'Rhapsody in Blue' for Piano with accompaniment of a small Wind Ensemble.
