      • It is a piece by George Gershwin, titled “3 Preludes: No 2
        in C-Sharp Minor.” They are using this piece at the end of each episode, switching from clarinet to violin as the solo instrument for different episodes. Gershwin composed it as a piano piece. You can find a clarinet version of this on Amazon under “Porgy and Bess Suite: 3 Preludes (arr F Villard) No 2 in C Sharp Minor.” I like the arrangement and clarinetist used on the TV show, but it doesn’t appear to be for sale, unfortunately.

    1. The music at the end of “The Plot Against America” was driving me nuts because I knew it so well but couldn’t name it. Then it hit me: I’m a bit of a Gene Kelly scholar and he used it in a street gang type style of dance in “Dancing: It’s A Man’s Game.” Great dance and great music.

    2. There is a recording by the Ridenour’s with a muffled trumpet and piano that sounds like the end credits. The Gershwin piece is so haunting. I would love to hear it played on the harmonica, a very Jewish instrument, and there is one recording by a Chinese quartet, but not so great.

    3. You can also find all three preludes (and other gems) on the album Levant Plays Gershwin. The moment after I heard the closing credits song of this show, I knew it was Gershwin. Then, like most of you, tried to figure out which piece it was (knowing it was one of the Preludes.
