Detailed Description

Porgy and Bess (Featuring: I Got Plenty o' Nuttin' / It Ain't Necessarily So / Summertime / Crab Man / Bess, You Is My Woman Now). Composed by George Gershwin (1898-1937). Arranged by James Barnes. Concert Band. Concert Band; Masterworks. Pop Symphonic Band. 20th Century; Broadway; Masterwork Arrangement; Standard. Grade 4. Conductor Score. 40 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.CB9802C).

The music from this timeless masterwork has fascinated generation after generation. Oddly enough, at its premiere the critics presented mixed reaction: some calling it the pioneering work of a new folk-opera genre, and others condemning it as merely a succession of hit songs. Fortunately, time has secured its place in history. James Barnes has skillfully crafted a wonderful scoring of "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'," "It Ain't Necessarily So," "Summertime," "Crab Man," and "Bess, You Is My Woman Now." Gershwin at his best! (8:19).
