I chose this arrangement over others because it looked like one I could play well without practicing for hours on end. I am a pretty good player but self-taught so am leary of 'classical' music. This arrangement is beautiful and easy to play without sounding 'easy'.

Beautiful, but not the original!
I love the song, but this edition is not the original. I have been playing the piano for 15 years. If you're looking for an advanced level, I suggest you buy the "best seller" edition. I am reordering that one.
