Description: The "female Gershwin" studied under Siloti and Rubin Goldmark but made her name playing in the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and her piano pieces (as well as those of her contemporary Alpert, who studied with Selim Palmgren) fall into the "novelty piano" category of Zez Confrey and Billy Mayerl. Sara Davis Buechner (piano).
