No other American composer straddles as many musical worlds. In the realm of popular song and jazz, Gershwin’s genius has long been celebrated. In the world of classical music, he was long marginalized as a “pops” composer —but no longer. PostClassical Ensemble explores “interpreting Gershwin” —the man and the music.
