Both jazzy and orchestral, "Rhapsody in Blue" remains one of the most recognized and popular pieces in the piano repertoire. This arrangement serves as a late intermediate "reduction" of the original. All of Gershwin's themes are included and the result is a highly playable and impressive solo!

    This arrangement retains all the Gershwin flavor and orchestral flourishes without being impossibly difficult for a pianist. My student asked for some "Jazz" as a summer treat after a year of heavy classics. This may be too much to finish with only another month before his school year begins again...

    , but the material is worth taking extra lesson time to master. Today's teens don't have a lot of experience with jazz harmonies or Gershwin's major works. I look forward to teaching this material.

    A little too simple. I was looking for a more advanced piano version, but not the original.
