Subject: RE: Penny to buy chewing gum/Gershwin?
Take a look at this page (click) which quotes Leonard Bernstein: "There are enough themes in An American In Paris for two symphonies."

The themes from American in Paris have always intrigued me. I'd swear that many of them must be from other sources. This page quotes Gershwin:...but I still think that not all the themes in the piece can be original.
