    I’m stuck deciding which Beauty and the Beast version to play. In your opinion, which version do you think is more beautiful/appealing to your ears?

    Version #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS5d2wD8OoI

    or:

    Version #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktVjtghPC8o

    I appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

    Hi Stardust!

    Interesting question. I took the time to listen to both videos in full, and I have to say that both are wonderful versions of the Disney classic.

    Personally, although I prefer the interpretation by Amy Turk – I feel it brings out more emotions – I would still go for the other harp score.
    This is because the version played by Amy Turk has a lot of blocked chords at the beginning and I prefer the left-hand patterns of the second video.

    But that’s just me! Perhaps a medley of both versions could be made eventually? I can’t really tell if one version is harder to play than the other, which I would factor in if I was faced with the same choice.

    Good luck and keep us informed! 🙂

    Evoléne,

    Thank you for your detailed feedback! Now that you mention it, I do prefer the left-hand patterns of the second version, compared to the blocked chords. I’m leaning more towards the second one now.

    Thanks for your time
