This chapter presents the text of Olin Downes' review of the performance of George Gershwin's Second Rhapsody together with Serge Koussevitsky's Boston Symphony Orchestra in New York, which was published in the February 6, 1932, issue of New York Times. Downes notes that this rhapsody has more orchestration and more development than Rhapsody in Blue. He also commends the superb performance of the Boston Symphony and the conducting of Koussevitsky.
