Right now, we're championing the recording by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. It’s available on Apple Music and you can stream it now or save it to your library.

July’s Essential Classical Album as chosen by Apple Music celebrates the 4th July with some Great Americans. Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin were two 20th century giants, each of whom straddled the classical and popular idioms. 

Bernstein had a thorough training in classical music, but enjoyed a lifelong love of jazz and Broadway. Gershwin came from the other side, plugging popular tunes for a publishing house and working for Jerome Kern, but he also composed an opera, piano concerto, and the immortal Rhapsody in Blue. 

The pieces merge restless rhythms, jazz influence, and gorgeous melodies, forming poems to New York, the city they both called home.
