  • February 08, 2015 Great selection for intermediate pianist

    This edition of Chopin's work is must have for every piano player who wishes to play Chopin. Most other editions are with advanced concert pieces. Edition has great introductory text; print is great, I especially liked pedal notation for every single piece. All editorial additions are in gray print...

    which is good idea to differentiate Chopin's and editors text

  • August 19, 2008 Nice Chopin Collection and excellent CD

    I've collected many Chopin books over the years, usually collections of a specific Opus(Preludes, Etudes, Nocturns, whatever). This is a very nice across-the-board collection of some of Chopin's easier "playable" works including a variety of Preludes, Mazurkas, etc. You might find something you haven't...

    heard before in this collection -- like Largo in E-flat major for me. Very Good. Nicely printed and you can't get any better than Palmer for the editor. Get the CD, which is excellent and well worth the slightly higher price than the book alone. I am very happy with this purchase and will get good use out of it.
