I have had many requests over the years for this particular piece by students. In this arrangement, I have tried to hold it to the intermediate level while at the same time maintaining all of the colors and rhythms of the original. Particularly the melody and its balance to the accompanying parts. About the only thing an intermediate student would need to review are the inversions of white key triads in the left hand. I have lowered the key to C Major to make the reading a bit less obtuse. I think if you listen to the audio sample you will hear that it is a full-bodied arrangement even though it’s simpler technically. I hope you enjoyed playing it. I know my students and I do.  - jeffrey Reid Baker
