This chapter presents the text of Frederick Jacobi's article titled The Future of Gershwin, which was published in the November-December 1937 issue of Modern Music. The article was written after the death of George Gershwin. Jacobi notes that Gershwin's music has suffered from inadequate critical appraisal as a composer during his lifetime and that his admirers have lauded him fatuously, with little of that quiet detachment which should go into the written consideration of even those works which one loves best.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Frederick Jacobi, critical appraisal, music criticism, composers
