Program Notes

 

In previous posts, I introduced you to Michael Feinstein. I wrote: "With his ernest voice and his considerable talent, Feinstein dedicated his career to finding lost songs; he sings them, and by doing so, he brings them forward to a new generation: he gives them new life." My plan is to help Feinstein bring his songs forward by bringing them to you.

 

Today, we'll hear 'Soon," by George Gershwin (music) and his brother Ira (lyrics). It was written in 1927, and was introduced as part of the 1930 musical Striking Up the Band.

 

Here is a link to Michael Feinstein singing "Soon," from his 1993 album Forever. Feinstein accompanies himself on the piano:

I created "Bravery in the World," the image above, in 2006. It is based on Mandelbrot fractals. The title is from the tenth-century Old English poem "The Seafarer":
 

That is the best epitaph,
that he should work
before he must be gone
bravery in the world.
