Excellent Edition; Excellent Work
Most people chose this work because of the timeless character pieces like June that you can learn. This edition makes this classic work much easier to understand the composer's intent while offering helpful fingerings to introduce the pieces to the performer. This edition is highly recommended, like all other G. Henle works.

Tchaikovsky Suite, The Seasons
I recently heard two of the months from this suite on NPR and thought they were charming. I decided I would like to play them and am very glad I bought them. They are fun to sight read and then to perfect for great additions to a program.

Simply great !
About the edition : The Henle edition is probably the best one existing. It is so much more interesting to know what's behind the music, to feel the music, to understand it. There is so much information in this edition of the Seasons, not just a mere introduction. The history, the composition, the preface, the commentary... About the music : Tchaikovsky's magic again ! The Seasons are such beautiful pieces. For example, in "January", one could really imagine sitting on the fireside in winter, or in "September", one could feel it's the hunting season. They're all so inventive, and really nice to play and to listen. Some are easier, others are more difficult, but everyone can try for it's really worth it and because it's a wonderful part in one's "répertoire musical".

Gorgeous Music--Outstanding Engraving
G.Henle Verlag holds the reputation of the best publisher around. One look at this outstanding effort will show you why. Then, as you learn the music you will see, hear and feel so much more! Truly you get what you pay for. Tschaikowsky's Seasons have not been as popular as they merit. Quite simply they are 12 gems.
