Ferde Grofe painted American landscapes with gorgeous musical notes. During this hour you will be enchanted with his musical descriptions of the Mississippi River, the Grand Canyon, and then marvel at his orchestrations of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” “ Porgy and Bess,” and much more. Gershwin and Grofe: an amazing collaboration. This hour will delight you with orchestral invention and jazzy motifs.
