Amazing to find this clip of George Gershwin actually playing. Funny edits here, but still worth watching.

Roger, thanks. Interesting find!

Speaking about retro, here’s a piece that makes me slightly nostalgic:

Alexander Mosolov’s Iron Foundry (Zavod) 1928 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LG6IoomJBhE

Modern youth may find it hard to believe, but people actually used to dream and hope – so well evidenced by Mosolov’s piece.

Here is a video on YouTube of home films, showing Gershwin and Schoenberg together at Gershwin’s residence in Beverly Hills in 1936 or 1937:
