  • Hi again GMCers and welcome to another Christmas theme. In this case I present you the beautiful piece White Christmas, by Irving Berlin.

    Berlin was one of the few composers of Broadway that wrote lyrics as well as music of their songs. He composed more than 1500 songs, including tunes like "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Puttin' On The Ritz," "God Bless America" and "White Christmas" and he was one of the most celebrated composers of 20th century America. The son of Russian immigrants who settled in New York City, Berlin did not know how to read music, but he earned money by singing and plinking tunes out on the black keys of pianos. By the time he died at the age of 101, many of his songs had become part of American culture, especially those that came from his musical plays or movie scores.

    I´ve made the arrangement of this theme trying to include this american smell, and making kind of chords that I associate with piano sounds.

    I hope you enjoy it!
