‘Girl Crazy’ is a musical in two act with music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. It had its premiere in 1930 in New York and had in the first run a total of 272 performances. The overture to ‘Girl Crazy’ consists of an introduction, a grandiose ending and refrains of the songs ‘I Got Rhythm’, ‘Embraceable you’, ‘Land of the gay Caballero’, ‘But not for me’ and ‘Broncho Busters’. Although the musical itself is not performed often anymore, the sparkling overture has conquered a place in the concert repertoire.
