Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This study approaches George Gershwin's iconic 'Rhapsody in Blue' as an 'arrangement' - a status it has held since its inception in 1924, yet one unconsidered until now. It shifts the emphasis away from a centralized composition and from the sole agency of a single composer, positing a broad vision of the 'Rhapsody'. Based on a host of newly discovered manuscripts, this book significantly alters existing historical and cultural conceptions of the 'Rhapsody'.
