This is one of my personal favorites of my piano arrangements. The tune is called "Distant Lives" composed by Adrian Johnston for the film, "Becoming Jane." The movie is about Jane Austen and the romantic relationship that helped inspire some of her novels. It stars Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy. Here is the original tune as played in the movie (found on YouTube):
And here is my piano arrangement inspired by the tune (also posted on YouTube):
And for those of you interested in playing this arrangement, here is the score (Roxana Eleni Belibou, who I found on YouTube, scored it for me):

This blog page represents my own original compositions as well as piano arrangements created off of others' tunes. I took 7 years of piano lessons throughout my childhood and have played off and on in my adult life. My piano is an 1884 Ivers & Pond Upright Grand, made in Boston, which I had refinished and rebuilt about 24 years ago.
