This is what Gracie’s Preludes music is supposed to sound like.
This is the arrangement for violin and piano by Jascha Heifetz of Gershwin’s piano score (performed here by Heifetz himself). I think the problem is that an ice skating rink is not a concert hall. The acoustics of the building and the quality of the sound system make music like this a risk.
That said, I find that I like Gracie’s music more each time I hear it – perhaps because I can hear it better as it becomes more familiar to me.
