Looking Beyond Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue'

George Gershwin's "Second Rhapsody" isn't nearly as well known as "Rhapsody in Blue," or "An American in Paris." But music professor Howard Pollack thinks it's one of Gershwin's most complex, interesting works.

Pollack teaches at the University of Houston and is the author of a new book George Gershwin: His Life and Work. He speaks with Debbie Elliott.
