  • May 28, 2011 Difficult, but Doable

    This is a great book for those who admire Copin's work but are not skilled enough to take on the likes of his Bacarolle in F. It still takes a lot of practice to play these. The SMP 7 is about right, however I should think most anyone could...

    manage these pieces. And the nicest part of this collection is that you actually get the original composition(or close enough). The songs aren't stripped down like they are in many "Easy Piano" books. Great buy here.

  • July 10, 2007 Easiest but not easy.

    These short pieces in their original form are a wonderful introduction to the music of chopin. The level is primarily late intermediate with a few selections easier or almost advanced. While it is an expanded version of Alfred's "First book of Chopin" and adds a number of Mazurkas it...

    lacks the helpful introductory notes of either the first book or the wonderful "Introduction to Chopin" edition with its excellant notes, format and selection. The CD is nice but doesn't make up for historical background and specific performance notes.

  • June 17, 2006 Nice Variety But NO Performance Notes

    The pieces, as written by Chopin “in their original form without simplification� are intermediate to near-advanced in level. Several could be called early-intermediate except for 1 or 2 short sections needing much practice to master: among these are the emotional “Prelude in E Minor, Op. 28, No.4...

    � and the beautiful “Waltz in A Minor, Op. Posth.� The latter is the “theme song� for the 2002 Amadeus-like film “Chopin: Desire for Love�. Unknown to most students, the waltz was performed at an adult master-class play-in at the world-class Peabody Institute in 2005 and everyone fell in love with it. This book is essentially all of Alfred’s “ Chopin: First Book for Pianists� plus 5 additional pieces for the same price! But this larger book has no performance notes at all. The list of pieces leaves out Mazurka in C Major, Op. 7 No. 5. Editor Willard Palmer’s reputation for bad fingering is not strongly evident here. I’m deducting a star for lack of performance notes.

  • February 25, 2006 Nice Introduction

    This book has a variety of so called "easy pieces" by Chopin. I have been playing piano as an adult for 6 years and so far have mastered only 3 of pieces. Chopin is not easy to play, it is complex music (consult a teacher about technique!), and demands a...

    large hand sometimes. The easiest piece is still an intermediate level piece (grade 6 RCM). These are good versions for learning some of this fantastic music. Good value in this book.

  • January 10, 2006 Easy Chopin Works

    The book is what it says...The works contained are Chopin's easiest works. There are some difficult pieces in this book However,the pieces tend to be short and slightly repetitive as far as theme. I would recommned the book for an early intermediate student.
