I was actually introduced to this remarkable arrangement first before hearing the original orchestral work. I recall that my initial impression was that it was a very strange and elusive piece. After many repeated listenings I did warm up to it enough for it to become one of my favorite compositions. Last month, I learned this on a whim for a piano lesson with no less than the author of the arrangement himself, which I found to be quite an interesting experience. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks! I can only manage to take lessons with him once every couple of months since he lives in a different part of the country and I prefer in-person teaching. There was a 1.5 year break between last month's and the previous lesson.

Very impressive playing! This is one of my favorite transcriptions of his. I'm happy to hear another interpretation of it and I'm also glad to hear you are still taking lessons from Slava!
