Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cut: Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers saunter along, accompanied by their dogs, with fascinating suppleness over the ship's deck. Who could have better composed the soundtrack to the incomparably relaxed motion of these superstars of the American musical film than George Gershwin? The film Shall We Dance is not shown all that often today. It is thus all the more enjoyable that the pianist Corinna Simon has now made the enchanting "Walking the Dog" available tonally, together with great hits and less familiar numbers penned by Gerswhin.
