The Singularity of Gershwin


  1. Another Russian, Jew connected to Gershwin was Joseph Schillinger (1895-1943). His influence on Gershwin’s music continues to be revealed more each year. In a 1987 interview with me, Dr. Steven Gilbert predicted that, as Gershwin’s concert music is taken more seriously, more people will want to know about his study of Schillinger’s system of musical composition and the influence it had on him. Gilbert’s prediction is becoming true.
