Crossword: A Piano Lesson With Gershwin, Berlin, and Beethoven
Hershey Felder has brought musical greats to life this summer. His latest, George Gershwin Alone, streams this Sunday.
I love a piano. So did Irving Berlin, of course, as did George Gershwin and Beethoven. As does Hershey Felder, one of the great modern-day interpreters of those composers. This summer Felder brought two plays with music (Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin and Beethoven) to online audiences, and this Sunday he'll stream George Gershwin Alone – Live From Florence. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to create a puzzle that revolves around those three titans of the piano with works ranging from classical to Broadway. So get keyed up for this crossword, and check out Hershey Felder as Gershwin this Sunday (you can find tickets here). Happy puzzling!
