Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s Associate Principal Clarinet, Eric Abramovitz, created a playful take on Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, entitling his arrangement “Rhapsody for your Blues”. He plays Fltue, E-flat Clarinet, B-flat Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Bass Clarinenet, and Piano.
In his words:
“I’ve been so inspired by all of the self-isolation musical projects that I had to make one of my own! Here is my arragnement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsdy in blue for multiple woodwind instruments. Thank you to my wonderful fiancee, Iris, for the help with videography, and thank you to all the musicians who appear on this video! Hope you enjoy!”
