George Gershwin Composer
Three-Quarter Blues ('Irish Waltz', Melody No.32)Performances: 5
Musicology:This little piano piece, barely forty-five seconds long, was composed in the early 1920s. It is subtitled "Irish Waltz," confirming the dictum that almost any kind of popular composition could be dubbed a "blues" during this period, the height of a blues mini-craze that followed ragtime's decline in popularity. The "Three-Quarter" part of the title comes from American vernacular usage, in which the three-four time signature is known as "three-quarter time."
