George GershwinÂ®, inspired by local singing and dancing groups while vacationing in Havana, Cuba in 1932, wrote this work which has now become an innovative contribution to his signature style. Mark Rogers' new edition utilizes all the original music and orchestration, with modifications that allow for improved intonation while retaining Gershwin's creativity. An enormous contribution to the literature. (9:50)
