2. Gershwin: Second Rhapsody (1931)
Gershwin’s less well known follow-up to ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ began as music for the film ‘Delicious’ accompanying a montage of a character wandering the streets of New York. Initially titled ‘Manhattan Rhapsody’, the piece later became known as ‘New York Rhapsody’, then ‘Rhapsody In Rivets’ and finally, ‘Second Rhapsody’.
