George Gershwin : Someone to watch over me arranged for Brass quintet

Product Code : Gershwin_01
"Someone to Watch Over Me" was introduced in the first preview of the musical Oh, Kay! in Philadelphia on October 18, 1926, by Gertrude Lawrence, the British star of musical revues and musical comedy. The story was typical for Twenties shows that featured complicated plots tossing together the rich and famous with the hoi polloi. This included American millionaires, flappers, British aristocrats hard-up for money, and bootleggers all involved in "mistaken identities and zany deceptions," which provide "the usual opportunities for the principals and chorus to burst into song "Someone to Watch Over Me," one of the great love songs in American musical theatre history, which is performed by Lawrence in the title role of Kay. During the second act, she appears on stage alone pouring out her heart to a rag doll. Kay, a British aristocrat disguised as a housemaid in love with an American playboy is feeling lonesome and insecure. She is despairing of her chances for winning his affection, or, for that matter, of ever finding anybody to care for her. She shares her feelings of needing someone to watch over her with the doll.
