"George Gershwin's own piano solo arrangement of his classic contemporary masterpiece for piano and orchestra. This masterful measure-for-measure two-hand adaptation of the complete modern concerto for piano and orchestra incorporates all orchestral parts and piano passages into two staves while retaining the clarity, sonority, and brilliance of the original. Advanced pianists will enjoy the experience of playing one of the 20th Century's most famous compositions, arranged by the composer himself to retain all the grandeur and sparkle of the original work"--Http://www.halleonard.com/product/viewproduct.do?itemid=321589
