Here's my version of Rhapsody in blue together with school orchestra. This was recorded some 8 months ago or so. Unfortenately, this isn't the best version of it, which is probably because it wasn't recorded in concert where everyone would have to stay concentrated throughout the performance. The orchestra is less focused here.
Anyway, I'd like to hear what you think about it!

The orchestra is not too bad, and your playing is very good. Good job on the repeated notes; that's where I usually lose control.

It was a much longer performance than I'm used to(I play it in 12.5 mins), but it was never boring.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot! I had to practice the repeated notes a lot to make it work... If I don't remember wrong, the version I posted is the one where I got the melody completely wrong on the repeated notes (because I guess you were speaking of the last part, after the big orchestra tune and piano solo?), I always hate listening to that part. However, we are going to make some edits as we recorded two different versions of it, and the other performance of that part was much better.

Thanks for your comment, I'll start to share some more stuff when I get them recorded \:\)
