This chapter discusses Dolly Dalrymple's report about American pianist and composer Beryl Rubinstein's discovery of an American genius composer in the person of George Gershwin. The report was intended for an English audience and it was perhaps the earliest positive mention of Gershwin's merits as a composer and not merely as a songwriter. It highlighted Rubinstein's recognition of Gershwin's aspirations to compose an American opera and his ability to orchestrate. This chapter was based on an article originally published in the September 16, 1922 issue of the The New York World.
