#Fact
1Gershwin was only 25-years-old when he composed his enduring masterpiece "Rhapsody in Blue" (1924).
2Brother-in-law of Leonore Gershwin.
3Ira Gershwin and his musical, "Porgy and Bess", at the Court Theatre in Chicago, Illinois was nominated for the 2011 Equity Joseph Jefferson Award for Musical Production (Large).
4The Hollywood house that he lived in was later owned by José Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney.
5Won the 1932 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the musical "Of Thee I Sing" collaborating with George S. Kaufman, Morrie Ryskind, and Ira Gershwin.
6He and his brother Ira Gershwin were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7083 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
7Was allergic to champagne.
8Portrayed by Robert Alda in the somewhat fictionalized biopic Rhapsody in Blue (1945).
9Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970.
10Some of his stage musicals, such as "Oh, Kay!" and "Tip-Toes", were made into silent pictures (Oh Kay! (1928), Tiptoes (1927)), but never re-made in the sound era. "Tip-Toes" was staged on television as a Christmas season episode of the British anthology The Jazz Age (1968) in 1968.
11His satirical musical, "Of Thee I Sing", which lampooned the U.S. Presidency, the Vice Presidency, and the entire impeachment process, was never filmed by Hollywood because it was considered too much of a political hot potato. It was, however, produced as a television special in a very toned-down and altered version, in 1972.
12Although Gershwin completed only four songs for his score for the film The Goldwyn Follies (1938) at the time of his premature death, three of them are considered among his best, "Love Walked In," "Love Is Here to Stay," and "I Was Doing Alright". Vernon Duke completed the songs for the film, which was neither a critical or popular success.
13He is considered by some to be the greatest American composer of the twentieth century.
14The first two truly complete recordings of Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess" won back-to-back Grammy Awards for Best Opera Recording--in 1976 (for Decca/London's studio recording conducted by Lorin Maazel) and in 1977 (for RCA Victor's recording of the critically acclaimed and highly successful Houston Opera stage production, in which the opera was restored to completeness after playing onstage in a slightly abridged version). The 1989 complete recording, however, often praised as the best so far, did not win a Grammy.
15His "Porgy and Bess", is still, as of 2003, the most beloved American opera ever written, and the most famous, despite what dissenting critics have said about it over the years.
16His "Porgy and Bess" was the first nearly all-black opera to be performed in the Soviet Union.
17He was the first composer to successfully use jazz elements in works written for the concert hall.
18His "Rhapsody in Blue" was hugely successful at its premiere, coming at the end of a reportedly extremely dull concert.
19His "Porgy and Bess" was the first American opera ever performed at La Scala Opera House, in Milan, Italy.
20Pictured on an 8¢ US commemorative postage stamp in the American Arts series, issued 28 February 1973.
21Younger brother of lyricist Ira Gershwin.

#Quote
1[on 'An American in Paris'] This new piece, really a rhapsodic ballet, is written very freely and is the most modern music I've yet attempted. My purpose here is to portray the impressions of an American visitor in Paris as he strolls about the city, listens to the various street noises, and absorbs the French atmosphere. As in my other orchestral compositions, I've not endeavored to present any definite scenes. The rhapsody is programmatic only in a general impressionistic way, so that the individual listener can read into the music such episodes as his imagination pictures for him.
2The European boys have small ideas but they sure know how to dress 'em up.
3[on 'Porgy and Bess'] Though of course I will try to keep my own style moving in the opera, the Negro flavor will be predominant throughout. I'd like to point out that Negro music is the prototype of jazz. All modern jazz is built up on the rhythms and melodic turns and twists which came directly from Africa. Even the rumba.
4'Porgy and Bess' is a folk tale. Its people naturally would sing folk music. When I first began work on the music I decided against the use of original folk material because I wanted the music to be all of one piece. Therefore I wrote my own spirituals and folk songs. But they are still folk music - and therefore, being in operatic form, 'Porgy and Bess' becomes an opera.
5Because 'Porgy and Bess' deals with Negro life in America, it brings to the operatic form elements that have never before appeared in opera, and I have adapted my method to utilize the drama, the humor, the superstition, the religious fervor, the dancing and the irrepressible high spirits of the race. If, in doing this, I have created a new form which combines opera with theater, this new form has come quite naturally out of the material.
6[on his mother] She's what the mammy writers write about, and what the mammy singers sing about. But they don't mean it, and I do
7[on composing 'Rhapsody in Blue'] There had been so much chatter about the limitations of jazz, not to speak of the manifest misunderstandings of its function. Jazz, they said, had to be in strict time. It had to cling to dance rhythms. I resolved, if possible, to kill that misconception with one sturdy blow. Inspired by this aim, I set to work composing with unwonted rapidity. No set plan was in my mind - no structure to which my music would conform. The rhapsody, as you see, began as a purpose, not a plan.. I tried to conceive the composition as a whole. I heard it as a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America - of our vast melting-pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our blues, our metropolitan madness.
8In composing, we combine what we know of music with what we feel. I see a piece of music in the form of a design. With a melody, one can take in the whole design in one look. With a larger composition, like a concerto, it is necessary to take it piece by piece and then construct it so much longer.
9Composing at the piano is not a good practice, But I started that way and it has become a habit..The actual composition must be done in the brain.
10Not many composers have ideas. Far more of them know how to use strange instruments which do not require ideas.
11To play American popular music most effectively, one must guard against the natural tendency to make too frequent use of the sustaining pedal. Our study of the great romantic composers has trained us in the method of the legato, whereas our popular music asks for staccato effects, for almost a stencilled style. The rhythms of American popular music are more or less brittle; they should be made to snap, and at times to crackle. The more sharply the music is played, the more effective it sounds.
12Sheet music, as ordinarily printed for mass sales, is arranged with an eye for simplicity. The publishers cannot be blamed for getting out simplified versions of songs, since the majority of the purchasers of popular music are little girls with little hands, who have not progressed very far in their study of the piano.
13American popular music, since its origin, has been steadily gaining in originality. Today it may truly lay claim to being the most vital of contemporary music. Unfortunately however, most songs die at an early age and are soon completely forgotten by the selfsame public that once sang them with great gusto. The reason for this is that they are sung and played too much when they are alive, and cannot stand the strain of their very popularity. This is especially true since the invention of the phonograph, and moreso since the widespread conquest of the radio.
14[on Jerome Kern, 1916] He was the first composer who made me conscious that popular music was of inferior quality, and that musical-comedy music was made of better material. I followed Kern's work and studied each song that he composed. I paid him the tribute of frank imitation, and many things I wrote at that time sounded as though he had written them himself.
15[to George Kaufman, who had expressed severe reservations about 'Of Thee I Sing'] George, you don't like to be sentimental. You hate love, and so forth. But the people believe that the President of the United states, even though he's going to be impeached, is not going to give up the girl he loves.
16[after completing "Porgy and Bess"] I think the music is so marvelous, I don't believe I wrote it.
17True music must repeat the thoughts and inspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans and my time is today.
18Life is a lot like jazz. It's best when you improvise.
19Why should I limit myself to only one woman when I can have as many women as I want?
