The theme is introduced by alternating major seconds-two notes two semi-tones apart- in the French London Symphony Orchestra* - Rhapsody In Blue / La Valse (Vinyl),  then a trumpet solo. By the first minute, the trumpet solo sounds very similar to the sultry theme heard in the first movement.
Gershwin continues with improvised and variant themes of the blues melody. The trumpet then repeats the theme played at the beginning. When the trumpet solo ends, the piano enters with a pentatonic variant of the first theme before transitioning into a faster, upbeat second theme.
This theme foreshadows the melody of the third movement- through repeated notes. This theme is also a variant of the one heard in the first movement. A violin solo bridges this theme and reintroduces the first theme played at the beginning. The piano then takes over with another variation in a cadenza of both the theme and accompanying arpeggios.
After the cadenza, Gershwin passes the original theme to the orchestra, then back to the piano and a flute. He then builds to the climax of the piece, alternating between the piano and the orchestra.
The movement ends with the piano playing the theme from the beginning, soft flute and string accompaniment, and a D-Flat Major cadence. The third movement is a fast-paced rondo and reintroduces the theme heard in the first movement, at a more vigorous tempo. The orchestra begins by playing the main theme of the movement in g minor and then the piano repeats the theme in f minor. As the piano continues to play the fast-paced notes, the Gershwin* / Ravel* - André Previn plays a counter-melody.
A glissando from the piano reintroduces the theme from the first movement played in the orchestra before transitioning back to the main theme. The orchestra then plays a second theme with soft piano accompaniment. Variants of the main and secondary themes return. After a modulation into B-Flat major, the orchestra plays the second blues theme heard in the second movement and the piano responds with the secondary theme.
The rat-a-tat rhythm returns, bridging the blues theme and the repeated note melody from the second movement, played by the orchestra. The movement's secondary theme returns in the piano before playing a chord progression heard in the first movement.
A series of fast-paced octave scales crescendo into London Symphony Orchestra* - Rhapsody In Blue / La Valse (Vinyl) same "grandioso" heard in the first movement. The rat-a-tat theme returns for the final time in the movement; pentatonic chord progressions and a final F Major 6 tremolo and F major chord finish the piece. The concert was sold out and the concerto was very well received by the general public. However, the reviews were mixed, with many critics unable to classify it as jazz or classical.
Indeed, there was a great variety of opinion among Gershwin's contemporaries. Sergei Prokofiev found it "amateurish". Gershwin is an artist and a composer — he expressed musical ideas, and they were new, as is the way he expressed them. When the time comes, whether it wants to or not it bursts into bloom and starts to produce apples. It is fundamentally different from the mannerism of many a serious composer [who writes] a superficial union of devices applied to a minimum of ideas.
Damrosch himself provided a note praising Gershwin's work: . Various composers have been walking around jazz like a cat around a plate of soup, waiting for it to cool off so that they could enjoy it without burning their tongues, hitherto accustomed only to the more tepid liquids distilled by cooks of the classical school.
Lady Jazz. George Gershwin seems to have accomplished this miracle He is the Prince who has taken Cinderella by the hand and openly proclaimed her a princess to the astonished world, no doubt to the fury of her envious sisters. A performance of the 3rd movement of the concerto is featured during a humorous fantasy sequence in the film An American in Paris In one of the film's many musical numbers, Oscar Levant 's character Adam Cook, a struggling pianist, daydreams that he is performing the concerto for a gala audience in a concert hall.
As the scene progresses, Adam fantasizes that he is also every other member of the orchestra, as well as the conductor, and even envisions that he is applauding himself from the audience at the concerto's conclusion.
There is also a performance of an excerpt in the Gershwin biopic Rhapsody in Blue where it is partially played onscreen by Robert Alda dubbed by Oscar Levantand then at the film's conclusion by Levant himself.
In February Steinberg and the Pittsburgh Symphony moved to Everest Recordsbut by mutual agreement this contract was terminated after three releases since Everest abandoned their classical recording program. These were audiophile 35mm film master recordings, a technique pioneered by Everest Records at that time.
A casualty of this decision was a planned recording of Mahler's Sixth Symphony with the London Philharmonic, which was to have been made in conjunction with Steinberg's performance given as part of the Mahler centenary in London. Light had attended a Steinberg concert in Danbury, Connecticut a few years before and told the conductor he'd like to record the orchestra.
After the Everest contract lapsed, Steinberg subsequently made a number of technically acclaimed records for Command on 35mm film recording stock. The Command releases, hailed as "outstanding examples of contemporary recording," were made in the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in London Symphony Orchestra* - Rhapsody In Blue / La Valse (Vinyl).
Light preferred the sound of this high-ceilinged auditorium with its open stage to that of Syria Mosque for recording. Steinberg's recording of the Brahms Symphony No. I suppose it must be so high to make room for the Lincoln inscription. But the engineers said, 'The microphones hear very well, and we will use a lot of them. So we recorded in Memorial Hall.
I am the only conductor in history who memorized the Gettysburg Address while rehearsing Brahms' Second Symphony. Steinberg's Command recordings eventually included complete cycles of the Beethoven and Brahms Symphonies, along with a diverse list of other works. The Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce named Steinberg Man of the Year for for his contributions to the city's cultural life, and for leading the Pittsburgh Symphony on a triumphant tour of Europe and the Middle East.
William Steinberg was noted throughout his career for his straightforward yet expressive musical style, leading familiar works with integrity and authority such that they sounded fresh and vital.
Despite the dynamic drive of his interpretations, his podium manner was a model of restraint. Steinberg said of his interpretive philosophy, "One must always respect the character of the music and never try to grow lush foliage in a well tempered English garden.
Steinberg had a wide range of repertoire, including a sympathy for the English music of Elgar and Vaughan Williams. He made a famous recording of Holst 's The Planets with the Boston Symphony for Deutsche Grammophon, after learning the piece at the age of Unusual for a conductor born in Europe, Steinberg was a sympathetic conductor of George Gershwin's music he made Gershwin recordings for three different labels.
Steinberg said, "The literature is so enormous. I look into what my colleagues won't. Actually, I am not success minded.
I merely dare. I take a risk. Criticism I get anyway. Steinberg once remarked to a San Francisco Symphony musician he corrected, "I may be wrong, but I don't think so. Steinberg's puckish humor was often in evidence, as when he told Time Magazine that he had conceived "something for the New York snobs—an all- Mendelssohn program. This is really the height of snobbishness, the wonderful answer to the question of just what do the snobs need.
