This suite of eight pieces portrays the ethnic or folk character of a child's dolls, drawing freely on national folk tunes. The set is edited by the Villa-Lobos scholar David P.

    The pieces in this volume are wonderful and deceptively difficult. I recommend it for any pianist who wants to branch out from the typical Brahms, Chopin, Beethoven, etc. piano music. Villa-Lobos at his best is just as good as the well-known greats. Check out Ginastera, too. The music...

    is easy to read--the notes are not cluttered or anything--which is helpful for someone who has little to no experience with piano music like this. However, the editor has left out a few accidentals here and there.
