    Opus 87 is my favorite piece by Shostakovich and I was so glad to get my hands on this gem of sheet music. Just from studying the 48 separate fugues and preludes included in both volumes, I have gained much insight into the way the whole work was put together...

    . The print is clear, and there is no ambiguous marks I have found. Having said that I did have one concern. There were a couple parts where the use of a sustain pedal will obviously be needed because the music becomes physically impossible to play without it. I had to consult the recording I own of the work in order to hear how the pianist played in those instances. My problem is that there is no pedal markings on the music to let the musician know what to do. However, those parts are obvious and will require little deduction on the part of the reader. All in all I highly recomend this monumental collection of music for any fan of piano music and Shostakovich.
