  • Description:

    Wohl kaum ein Wiegenlied aus dem Bereich der klassischen Musik hat - neben Brahms' `Guten Abend, gute Nacht` - eine solche Popularitt erlangt wie George Gershwins (1898-1937) `Summertime`. Es stammt aus seiner am 10. Oktober 1935 in New York mit zunchst nur migem Erfolg uraufgefhrten Oper `Porgy and Bess`. Kein Jazz-Musiker von Rang hat es sich nehmen lassen, eine Version dieses beraus stimmungsvollen und eingngigen Liedes, mit dem Clara zu Beginn der Oper ihr Kind in den Schlaf wiegt, zu prsentieren. Die vorliegende Version bietet die Mglichkeit, dieses berhmte `Summertime` nun auch mit Streichquartett (und Kontrabass ad lib.) oder Streichorchester zu spielen - Let's swing ! / There is hardly any other lullaby in the field of classical music - apart from Brahms' 'Guten Abend, gute Nacht' - that has gained such popularity as George Gershwin's (1898-1937) 'Summertime'. It is a song from his opera `Porgy and Bess which was premiered in New York on 10 October 1935 with only moderate success at first. Every important jazz musi-cian insisted on presenting his own version of this rather evocative and catchy song with which Clara rocks her child to sleep at the beginning of the opera. The present version now offers the opportunity to play this famous 'Summertime' with a string quartet (and double-bass ad lib.) or string orchestra - let's swing !
