"So far Gershwin has neither published nor performed many of his finest inspirations.
The composition of the 24 Preludes will probably earn him an even higher rank among the multitude of contemporary composers.
In 1925, an admirer announced in the Vanity Fair magazine the great project that George Gershwin had helped to compose preludes covering all the tones in the footsteps of Bach and Chopin.
On December 4 of the following year, Gershwin played five of these pieces in public, but during his lifetime, Broadway's favorite composer, Busy, will only release the famous three Preludes for Piano (1927), shown here in an Urtext edition.
