This chapter presents the text of music critic Lawrence Gilman's review of George Gershwin's performance of his Concerto in F at the Carnegie Hall with the New York Symphony Orchestra (NYSO) which was published in the December 4, 1925, issue of the New York Herald. In his article, Gilman evaluates Gershwin's “jazz concerto” by applying each of those terms to the works content and he concludes that the vitality of the former makes dependence of the latter burdensome. He also mentions NYSO conductor Walter Damrosch's positive comments on Gershwin's composition and musical style.
