  • October 28, 2011 Clear and complete Ballades

    Very legible, fingerings generally good, measure numbers helpful. Authoritative score and annotations as far as I can tell. Only drawback is that this printing has a binding which makes it difficult to get the pages to open and lay flat on the music stand unless you basically crush the spine...

    , but I was able to do this without having the thing fall apart. I understand older printings did not have this problem.

    If you're learning anything by Chopin, get this edition! Paderewski edition of the Ballades is the best edition I have seen so far.

    To characterize this edition as a kind of urtext is false advertising. With the facsimile of the original manuscript available, the errors in this edition are blatantly apparent.
