A great song for a great city, New York State of Mind might just be the finest song ever written for New York.  Billy Joel, a lifelong resident loves his city, and it comes through in this excellent song.

This arrangement was written as an attempt to be as faithful to the original as possible.  Hence, it has two tricky rubato sections, one at the beginning and one at the end.  This is for an advanced/professional ensemble, but even great players should use the score.  The double stops in the violins and viola are not difficult, with most of them using an adjacent open string. 

At almost 6 minutes, this would make a great selection on a chamber music recital.  Or, for weddings and events as either background music, or more prominently for couples from the NY area.
