Gershwin’s music spanned jazz, pop and classical, and New Jersey’s own Terrence Wilson brings it all home with a suite of dazzling piano pieces. An American in Paris finds Gershwin at his jauntiest. Aaron Dworkin’s The American Rhapsody sets riveting narration from George Washington’s writings to Coleridge-Taylor’s Symphonic Variations on an African Air.
