Classical Music Stories: The Great Gatsby


Daisy is driving Gatsby away from town after the fight.  She sees her life shattering around her as she frantically rushes home.

 And of course, after the music ends, we know what happens next…


Do you hear this story, too, or do you hear something different? And what was your favorite part?
