One of Gershwin's loveliest songs, the music no doubt inspired by the charming lyrics of the composer's brother Ira. The treatment is quite elaborate and the textures quite rich, but the arranger has tried to keep the direct and touching expression of the original (words and music) in mind.
This arrangement is for eight-part strings (the same combination as the Mendelssohn octet) or for string orchestra. For the orchestral version there is a double bass part (2 copies); a double bass could also be added to the octet version to good effect.
This will suit advanced players (Grade 8 or above).
Duration: about 3 minutes.
