Recorded at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Belvedere, California and Produced by Grammy Award winning composer Judith Sherman.
This recording presents some very familiar and much-loved music in an unexpected format. Ten of Jerome Kern and George Gershwin’s greatest songs — songs almost everyone has heard (and probably sung) — are performed here in transcriptions for string quartet (and clarinet). The path to this disc of quintessentially American music was long and circuitous, it involves the contributions of many different people over a span of many decades, and it got its start in Spain.
