An American in Paris

Ein Amerikaner in Paris (An American in Paris) ist eine Komposition für Orchester von George Gershwin aus dem Jahr 1928. Es ist neben der Rhapsody in Blue eines der populärsten Werke des Komponisten.

Ähnlich wie die Rhapsody in Blue ist Ein Amerikaner in Paris eine Rhapsodie oder Tondichtung in freier Form, in der Gershwin die Eindrücke seines eigenen Aufenthalts in Paris musikalisch ausmalt. Das Stück wurde als Auftragskomposition für die New Yorker Philharmoniker verfasst. Es ist für die übliche Besetzung des Sinfonieorchesters geschrieben, erweitert um einige Effektinstrumente wie Hupen von Pariser Taxis, die Gershwin extra aus Frankreich mitbrachte.

Das Stück wurde am 13. Dezember 1928 in der Carnegie Hall von den New Yorker Philharmonikern unter der Leitung von Walter Damrosch uraufgeführt.

Die Aufführungsdauer beträgt ca. 20 Minuten.

Im Jahr 1951 diente das Orchesterwerk als Vorlage für den Spielfilm Ein Amerikaner in Paris von Vincente Minelli.
