Prelude à la Gershwin

Iman Habibi
3 min 30 sec

Written as a tribute to George Gershwin, this prelude contains some of the characteristics of his compositions, including the chromatic inner lines, syncopated rhythms, the melody and accompaniment texture, use of rhythmic diminution, dissonant grace notes, and repetition. It has not been my intention to imitate Gershwin, but rather to internalize some of the above elements, and present them in my own musical language.
