    Some changes were made from the original without reason, such as changes in tempo, omissions of key measures and cords which could have been retained while maintaining the difficulty level. I bought the original and adapted this version to increase the richness of the adaptation. Good beginning point but not...

    excellent as a standalone version.

    This version of Phapsody In Blue is wonderful. I was away from the piano for 54 yrs, have been playing again for 9 months and never imagined I'd be able to play at this level again. The arrangement is good and I recommend it for any intermediate player.

    I like it. I can play it but I don't know if I consider myself a late intermediate more like intermediate.

  • December 11, 2008 A little too simplified

    As the rehearsal pianist for a community orchestra, I wanted a version that included the ENTIRE piece but with some simplification. This piece was a little too simplified, it was shortened, and the transitions were awkward with odd key changes. I ended up making my own version off the Gershwin...

    original (e.g., chords instead of the many-fingered runs up and down the keyboard; not crossing hands where Gershwin did so). My playing sufficed to help the orchestra practice entrances and dynamics until the "real" soloist could be at rehearsals. I doubt I'll ever use the simplified piece I just bought.
