This chapter presents the text of Vernon Duke's account of George Gershwin's musical career, which was published in the October 23, 1944, issue of Newsweek and in the January 1947 issue Musical Quarterly. Like Gershwin, Duke was also of Russian-Jewish heritage and studied with Joseph Schillinger. Duke explains that Gershwin was his own orchestrator beginning with the Piano Concerto commissioned by Walter Damrosch.
