Rhapsody in Blue arr.Yukie Smith image
This favourite piece which was originally for piano and orchestra is here arranged for one piano with two players of intermediate standard (around grade 4 to 6).
This is an abridged arrangement lasting around 5½ minutes. The two parts are of a similar standard and both have their fair share of technical challenges including cross-hand playing, long and rapid arpeggio passages, fast repeated notes, wide ranges of dynamic control, various tone colour production and articulation as well as capturing the essence of tempo changes together with effective ensemble playing. As the original was for piano and orchestra, in this arrangement quite a few of the orchestral instrument cues are marked so that the pianists will know what sort of instrument they are trying to emulate! Tempo indications are only a guide and can be varied according to the ability and interpretation of the players.
Duration 5½ minutes
