This chapter presents the text of music critic Samuel Chotzinoff's review of George Gershwin's performance of his Concerto in F at the Carnegie Hall with the New York Symphony Orchestra (NYSI) in December 1925. Chotzinoff noted that the announcement of Gershwin's first attempt at symphonic form generated more anticipatory excitement than Deems Taylor's symphonic poem Jurgen. He also described the composition as one that cannot be explained with certainty.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Concerto in F, Samuel Chotzinoff, New York Symphony Orchestra, orchestral music, symphonic composition
