- Embraceable You
It's perhaps the most touching of the Gershwins' love songs. The lyrics show the sophistication of Ira and the music epitomizes the genius of George. The arrangement is brilliant in its simplicity, including just a touch of Rhapsody in Blue at the end. An American classic for today's choirs.
George Gershwin (1898 – 1937) was an American composer and pianist, whose compositions spanned both popular and classical genres. Among his best-known works are the orchestral compositions Rhapsody in Blue (1924) and An American in Paris (1928), the songs "Swanee" (1919) and "Fascinating Rhythm" (1924), the jazz standards "Embraceable You" (1928) and "I Got Rhythm" (1930), and the opera Porgy and Bess (1935), which included the hit "Summertime".
