    If you like Gershwin, you will love this collection. You can find Preludes I,II, and III lots of other places but this is the first place I have ever seen any of his other Preludes-the commentary by A. Zizzo is also fascinating. To interpret Gershwin well you really...

    need to be an advanced level player- I would not attempt these if you are truly at an intermediate level .

    I think that George Gershwin's Prelude I is one of the best things I have seen/heard/played in all of my life. I wonder how much time he spent writeing it.
