Other arrangements of Last Rose of Summer?

January 25, 2021, 4:40 AM · Does anyone know of an arrangement of Last Rose of Summer that is merely advanced-student level, rather than literally-the-most-difficult-piece-in-the-repertoire level?

It's a lovely tune and if there was a version of it that was sort of Bruch-level difficult, that would be amazing... does such a thing exist?

It seems to be solid intermediate skill level. the last rose of summer really was all the rage in the 19th century, mendelssohn, ernst, and even beethoven used it.
