Embraceable Gershwin

What is your favorite Gershwin song?
Embraceable You?
Fascinatin' Rhythm?
Someone to Watch Over Me?
The Man I Love?
Somebody Loves Me?

The great pianist Earl Wild transcribed all these alluring Gershwin tunes into virtuosic etudes and variations--all fun, passionate pieces for solo piano. Would there be anything sweeter than a Saturday matinee with pianist Joanne Polk performing these arrangements of Gershwin's songs while Jeffrey Langford walks us through the life and times of the composer?

You might even want to sing along.
