Although there are many motif analyses in the literature, there is almost no motif-based analytical work when it comes to Western Classical Music works which intensively contain jazz elements. Just 50 measures long, Tutti in the first movement of Concerto in F, which is considered as a masterpiece of George Gershwin, who is one of the most important names integrating jazz and serious symphonic music, draws attention with the intensity of the motific structure it has. In this study, a motif-structured analysis of the mentioned Tutti, which aims to reveal the characteristic of repetition and distribution of motifs throughout Tutti, is carried out.
