The Music is Lovely ,but hasn't a very full sound.I found it quite easy to play ,yet I am pleased with The purchase overall, It's nice to just sit and play something nice that isn't too stretching.The Chairmans Waltz is a lovely tune & a definitely my favourite.If you enjoyed...

A Little Thin
I bought the collection for the solo piano transcription of "The Chariman's Waltz" which suffers by comparison with the Yo-Yo Ma version heard on the soundtrack. A piano is not a cello and it lacks a certain sweep. Still, it's a pretty enough tune.
