I Got Rhythm Variations

1934, 74 years ago, George Gershwin premiered his "I Got Rhythm" Variations at Symphony Hall in Boston. 

Why should this be of any interest to sax players? 

Just part of the history of the instrument. Gershwin was one composer who didn't hesitate using saxophones in his symphonic works. 

We should celebrate his music as well as that of all the other composers who have been enticed into adding the beauty of the saxophone's tone and its flexible dexterity to the repertoire of the symphony.

We have to remember that Adolphe Sax's original intent was for the saxophone to find a home in the symphony.
