George Gershwin's Concerto in F was a response to demands for a 'proper concerto' after the success of Rhapsody in Blue, avoiding programmatic content while providing a feast of tunes both uplifting and nostalgic. Originally intended as music for a film, his up-beat Rhapsody No 2 describes the bustling Manhattan cityscape while under construction. Sourced from his hit musical Girl Crazy, I Got Rhythm Variations was Gershwin's last full score. Pianist Orion Weiss is one of the most sought-after soloists and collaborators of his generation of young American musicians.
