    I am an early intermediate student and found this book (especially with the CD) a great introduction to Chopin's works.

    As a lover of Chopin I found this introduction Inspiring & at the right level for me to begin working on Chopin's beautiful music. I would recommend buying the CD version as listening to the pieces performed is very helpful (I found the cd after I had purchased the book...

    ). This is a great addition to any developing intermediate player. My favourites are the Waltz in A minor, Waltz in B minor, The Beautiful Nocturne in C minor & The Preludes.

    If you know anything at all about music, stay away from Albert Publishing. They entice you with nice titles and pretty covers, yet the way the set up their music is mind boggling. They insist on putting dynamics, fingering, and just about any musical directions in a very light print...

    . They also put courtesy accidentals measures away from the original accidental which makes you think that there is an accidental.I have been a musician for forty years, I spent eleven years in the Navy Band, and am I a honors graduate of Berklee College if Music. If Alfred publishing considers themselves as music educators, why would they put something out that a student would see only in their publications. I had purchased one book of theirs a few years ago and I was appalled how they had page turns in the middle of a phrase, and I had forgotten about it. I wish I remembered, because I surely would not have bought another book that they publish.

  • 2007-10-02 00:00:00.0 OK - a little disappointing

    I hated the Polonaises and a few other works in this volumne that are posthumous. They just were boring pieces. However, I loved the Waltz in A minor and the incredible Nocturne in c minor. I also liked most of the Mazurkas. I was familiar with all of the preludes...

    before.

    Great book for the inermediate/late intermediate pianist...or just someone who wasnt to be well rounded in Chopin repertoire *like myself.* I play at about an early advanced level, but I bought this for the fabulous posthumous polonaises that are somewhat hard to find *namely the G minor and...

    Ab ones.* The easiest of all of his famous works are included from the waltzes and preludes to the polonaises and nocturnes. A definite buy. As a teacher, I find it as a great way to introduce my early intermediate students to Chopin.
