George Gershwin's three most famous preludes demonstrate his genius for piano writing, and portray a variety of styles. Prelude I exudes energetic syncopation, Prelude II is a lyric blues with an ostinato-like accompaniment, and Prelude III closes this set brilliantly with rugged rhythms and exciting syncopations. Included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.
Prelude I (Allegro Ben Ritmato e Deciso) George Gershwin (composer)
