Irving Berlin: The American Dream

fire

Rising up from his life as a poor Russian immigrant to world fame, Berlin stands as the essence of The American Dream.  His body of work covers 6 decades.  With a personal endorsement from the Irving Berlin family, Saloff presents a touching and beautiful portrait of Berlin’s life and music, filled with funny and amazing antidotes of the songwriter’s life and career. Berlin truly lived the American Dream and was an amazing influence and motivator during the years of both World Wars.

Irving Berlin can be presented with piano and voice, with trio, quartet or quintet.

There’s No Business Like Show Business

 

“I and cannot tell you how moved I was by the way you turned an anthem into a love song in your rendition of “There’s No Business Like Show Business”.  It was very personal as if you knew that “Show Business” was after all my father’s serenade to the business he loved.”
