As an arranger and composer, Andy Stein has written and arranged an opera with libretticist Garrison Keillor, scored several feature films (for Roger Corman and National Lampoon), a TV special and an Oscar-winning cartoon. He has arranged numerous projects for "Pops" orchestra, which have been performed by dozens of orchestras across the nation and in Europe, including the Symphonies of Dallas (PBS broadcast), Baltimore, Boston, New York, National Symphony in Washington, Munich, London, etc. His works for violin and orchestra have been performed by Joshua Bell, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Pamela Frank, Cho-Liang Lin, and others. His symphonic rendition of Schubert's string quartet, "Death and the Maiden," arranged for full orchestra in the style of Schubert, has been performed by world class ensembles on both sides of the Atlantic. His newly arranged piano concerto, after another work of Schubert's, was commissioned by André Watts and has been performed by him with several "big city" symphonies including those of Chicago and Washington, DC. His arrangement of "Junk" is the opening cut on Paul McCartney's 1999 CD, Working Classical. He has been a great admirer of the popular and jazz arrangers of the '20's and '30's, having transcribed a body of Duke Ellington's early work, arranged for the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and for a recreation of Paul Whiteman's famous 1924 Aeolian Hall concert which premiered George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue."
