Gershwin created these 18 song transcriptions between 1919 and 1931. He played the pieces at numerous private parties, often with many variations. Gershwin's impromptu performances of these 18 songs served as the basis for the transcriptions. His unique playing style can be detected in these wonderful pieces. Titles: Clap Yo' Hands * Do-Do-Do * Do It Again * Fascinating Rhythm * I Got Rhythm * I'll Build a Stairway to Paradise * Liza (All the Clouds'll Roll Away) * The Man I Love * My One and Only * Nobody But You * Oh, Lady Be Good * Somebody Loves Me * Strike Up the Band * Swanee * Sweet and Low Down * 'S Wonderful * That Certain Feeling * Who Cares? (So Long As You Care for Me).

  • February 21, 2013 Gershwin Transcriptions

    This publication amply fulfills my immediate objective, namely to have a copy for performance of Gershwin's own solo piano arrangements of his best-known songs. The Gershwin work list in New Grove includes "George Gershwin's Song-Book", described as "18 arrs. of refrains from Gershwin's songs" with...

    a publication date of 1932. The musicologist in me wishes that Maurice Hinson had used this as his primary source rather than the undated "Gershwin at the Keyboard" (New World Music Corp., New York). If there are text discrepancies, they should probably be resolved in favor of the edition that appeared during the composer's lifetime, presumably under his supervision. Apart from that, Hinson's editorial procedure and his historical and interpretive notes appear to be exemplary.

  • August 07, 2011 Very happy with purchase

    This is a great collection of some of George Gershwin's solo piano works. The first few pages give a mini-biography of Gershwin, and several general hints on how to play his music. Editor Maurice Hinson also includes a mini-history of each selection, and specific notations on playing...

    certain measures, notes, chords, etc. Being an intermediate pianist, I appreciate the fingering suggestions contained therein as well. I am very happy with this purchase!

  • April 17, 2009 Awesome

    These pieces are really full and are not cheesy simplified versions. They're a little difficult due to Gershwin's love of jazzy timing and change of key within the measure. But they are well worth the work.

    Difficulty Level:
  • August 31, 2008 Disappointing

    If you are looking for Gershwin arrangements that include introductory verse (as in the great recording that Morris/Bolcom did for Nonesuch years ago), this does not have them.

  • August 27, 2008 Fun Music

    Be prepared to up-tempo and full-hand reach for these pieces. The satisfaction of playing pure Gershwin sound and Rhythm is a reward. The scores are fully legible with no eye strain.
