The Memory of All That: Gershwin Tribute

orchid

One of Spider’s most beloved and critically acclaimed works is her Gershwin concert.

She was chosen by the Gershwin family as one of the sanctioned acts of the Gershwin Centennial.  Saloff toured the concert nationally to established venues such as Feinstein’s in NYC (which Michael Feinstein attended).  Internationally, the show played in London and headlined the St. Petersburg Gershwin Festival in Russia and continues to garner raves from audiences and the press.

 

The concert features Gershwin classics alongside rare pieces provided by the Gershwin Trust specifically for Saloff.  The concert includes personal stories about the music and the fascinating life of the Gershwins.

 

The Memory of All That can be presented with piano and voice, with trio, quartet or quintet.  And can be presented in a full program for full symphony orchestra.

 

Featured songs:
They Can’t Take That Away From Me

S’wonderful

Embraceable You

Someone To Watch Over Me

I Got Rhythm

Love is Here to Stay

 

 

“How could anyone find anything new to say about such classics? Saloff effectively strips away the familiar turns of phrase to which this music has been subjected for more than half a century, which renders the Gershwin songs as crisp, lucid and plain to the ear as they must have sounded generations ago.”
