Born in New York to Russian-Jewish parents, George Gershwin (1898 - 1937) did much in his short life to bridge the gap between American popular music and serious classical compositions. Among his most known works are the opera Porgy and Bess and the orchestral pieces Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris.
