Gershwin Plays Gershwin

George Gershwin plays a piano version of "Rhapsody in Blue" for a piano roll recording. The piece was originally written (and published) for piano before being orchestrated by Ferde Grofe. It's almost impossible for me to hear this and not hear the orchestrations in my head, but a chance to hear Gershwin play is always wonderful.

I LOVE "Rhapsody in Blue"! Always liked it, fell in love in Disney's Fantasia 2000.
