Bess, You Is My Woman Now

We’re just finishing editing our violin and cello duet of Gershwin’s beautiful love song  Bess, You Is My Woman Now. Like Summertime this song comes from Gershwin’s only opera Porgy and Bess. When it was first performed in 1934 the work caused  controversy as the dark plot – featuring violence, prostitution, drugs and poverty – was  thought by some to be an unfair characterisation of the black community. Nevertheless the opera contains some of Gershwin’s finest work and is full of character and feeling.
