Chopin Arrangement in “Karate Kid” (2010)

Craig’s arrangement for violin, harp and strings of Chopin’s Nocturne no 20 in C Sharp Minor was recently used in the film “Karate Kid”. It is a remake of the 1980s version which Craig also worked on musically.

    Where can I get Craig’s arrangement for violin, harp and strings of Chopin’s Nocturne no 20 in C Sharp Minor? I can find many people playing it on youtube but I can’t find YOUR version. People are either playing it too slow or too fast. I WANT YOUR VERSION. Where can I purchase it?

    Oh, when I mean YOUR VERSION, I don’t mean the sheet music. I want the actual track to play it on my ipod.

      Thanks for your interest. A good version of this arrangement is on the Joshua Bell “Romance of the Violin” album. It’s available on iTunes and Amazon. There are other recordings but this is the best.

    I would actually love the sheet music for the arrangement of this piece you did in the latest Karate Kid. Where could I find that sheet music?

    Thanks for the info regarding this beautiful arrangement. Well done. I do appreciate Joshua Bell, but the particular rendition on the movie is a wonderful interpretation – not quite as mature as Bell, it is delicate and I believe it gracefully captures the fragility of Chopin’s original arrangement for solo piano. Is there a recording of this that is available for download?
