This time around, Akmal with his symphonic orchestra.
All arrangements are by Akmal, though he did follow the spirit of the original song to the letter. It was fit enough for a solo performance, but he added the string section using East West Symphonic Orchestra, and made it grand enough for recording, at least in my mind.
We came across this song by chance while looking for suitable piano pieces for a gig. We love the violin in the original and wanted to do it ourselves, but it is going to take us longer than expected as the violin - though non-chalant in character, requires cross-string chords to play and made it nearly impossible.
Anyway here is Akmal. Don't forget to visit us at YouTube and rate and comment us please.
And the original is posted below.
