    Summertime, Gershwin on Piano ! what an unusual, but delightful version of
    that so well known music ( often sang by Billie Holiday and Ella
    Fitzgerald) . i also apreciate “amateur” versions that can be so near to
    the authentic piano score, slowly, quietly, so that we can hear each
    footsteps on home’s stairs , so that we can observe each wing’ s feather
    spreading !. Anyway, both of these renditions are welcome. In the
    original musical score we can hear the most important parts of this
    composition, the jazz one and the Klezmer style, so essential for
    Gershwin.That is his own, so intense so real,of course. Very respectable in
    this way of meaning, what a high musical expression, what a deep and
    sensitive early composition. Yes, to travel in those area means to cross
    through history of Europe and Russia ( his parent’ s beginnings).
    St Petrsburg lives into that piece of music, towards his jazz actuality.
    Soul is full as much as it can be with Maurice Ravel, our national pianist
    in France. In spite of he met him successfuly a little bit later, Gershwin
    had early his own way so near to Ravel ! A brotherhood musical expression,
    i Think. Ravel told him ” why would you have to become a second Ravel ,
    since i tell you to become the first Gershwin ? ….here it is !
    The “blues” is also living in Klezmer style, how would it be different, how
    could it be hidden? Such a ground state, a fundamental soul. “Jacob
    Gershowitz” was born in America, in 1898, he was absolutly opened to any
    musical style an arrangement, able to mix influences in a positive
    creation. Not so common ! Here is a genius, an affective genius, a friend
    that we would have loved to met, here is the rare bird ! There is a similar
    way of rendition with Zoltan Kodaly, who cared of the traditional customs
    in Hungary, precious values, so opened to an original story. Both of them
    have something to say, They do not compose for the “wind or smoky blues
    seemings”. Gershwin is not a special guest of music, he is a great man of
    life, he is the gift, and did so much for every one, any history, .
    Christian Guignard from France.
