  • June 01, 2012 Beware the Key

    It's wonderful to have this arranged for piano, and it closely tracks the Keisuke Nakagoshi performance on YouTube (which inspired me to track this down in the first place). "But what am I doing wrong?" I kept asking myself... until I suddenly noticed that the original is in B...

    -flat minor and this has been transcribed to A minor. It still sounds great and has all the subtlety of the original, but I'm wondering about the wisdom of devoting a considerable investment in muscle-memory training into a version that's a half-step low.

  • October 09, 2011 Nice, but Odd Paper Folding

    It sounds great on piano; even better on organ. The easy rating comes because the music itself is slow and has few moving parts, not because it is dumbed down. But it's printed on both sides of one long sheet of paper. Turning pages works until you just about...

    have to turn the whole ungainly thing over.

  • October 08, 2011 Adagio for Strings

    Extraordinary arrangement. Of spec ial note is the way the transcbriber passes the nmelody back and forth between hands, a challenge to bring out the melody clarly. Fun to play. Beautiful expeience.

  • August 16, 2011 Adagio For Strings - Piano Solo

    This is an very nice piece of music to play, not too hard as would be expected for an Early Intermediate level student such as me. It's still has that same exact very "emotionally moving" music running from the beginning to the very end, and that very spectacular "high...

    notes" part at about in the middle that gives you "goose bumps" cuz it's so moving, just as Samuel Barber would want you to "feel" it coming from a piano! I love this one work! It's GREAT!!! 5 Stars! 2 Thumbs Up! AAA piano piece!!! Obviously many people have already bought it, and reviewed it, but most love it, too! Skill level is: Early Intermediate to Intermediate. Enjoy playing something "truly" special for a change, right here.

  • February 17, 2010 What a MESS on the Page...

    The reviewer who said that this arrangement could be the basis for another, better, adaptation is spot on! Mr. Rosen, whose Joplin reductions are very nice, has NOT suceeded with this chart. I did indeed use it as the basis for another adaptation, which I use for myself and my...

    students. This commercial one is rife with meaningless ties, poor distribution of notes, poorly-placed shifts of the clefs, etc.
