    This is not a review as such, since it is my own edition. I just wish to point out to prospective buyers that the musical text is in places somewhat different from some other editions. This is because I have chosen as the main source the rediscovered, neat and orderly...

    autograph in the British Library, rather than the one in the Warsaw Library. The latter had been the source of most older editions, including the so-called "Paderewski" edition--from which many of us first learned this work.

    Editor Charles Timbrell has done performers of this monumental and exquisite piece a great service. His extensive historical notes are interesting and his performance notes, pedaling suggestions and sectional musical analysis are helpful in every way. The print is clear and not overly spaced and the price is certainly right...

    ! Bravo Alfred Publ.
