This Week: In honor of the centennial of the debut of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” in February 1924, we’ll play three diverse versions of that groundbreaking composition - (1) the original big band score played by Jon Kimura Parker and a Canadian All Star Band, as performed on Orcas Island two summers ago, then (2) a solo piano version by a young Kazakhstan prodigy, Eldar Djangarov, and (3) Shelley Berg with the London Philharmonic, “An American in London.”his Week: In honor of the centennial of the debut of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” in February 1924, we’ll play three diverse versions of that groundbreaking composition - (1) the original big band score played by Jon Kimura Parker and a Canadian All Star Band, as performed on Orcas Island two summers ago, then (2) a solo piano version by a young Kazakhstan prodigy, Eldar Djangarov, and (3) Shelley Berg with the London Philharmonic, “An American in London.”
