George Gershwin

he was an American composer and pianist
Porgy is...an interesting example of what can be done by talent in spite of a bad setup. With a libretto that should never have been accepted on a subject that should never have been chosen, a man who should never have attempted it has written a work that has a considerable power.More George Gershwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All these tales of people sitting down and composing symphonies just as though they were writing a letter are very much exaggerated; at least, it isn't that way in my work.More George Gershwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A skyscraper is at the same time a triumph of the machine and a tremendous emotional experience, almost breath-taking. Not merely its height but its mass and proportions are the result of an emotion, as well as of calculation.More George Gershwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

They can express themselves more glibly.More George Gershwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is always possible to create something original.More George Gershwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
