Notes & Reviews:

Gershwin's Rhapsody in blue is one of the most successful fusions of classical music and jazz ever, and is one of the most popular of all American concert works. Gershwin described the piece, which opens with an unforgettable two-and-a-half octave glissando wail on the clarinet, as 'a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot... our metropolitan madness.
