    Real Chopin that is not our of reach of a competent, or pre-competent player. Musically, it is anything but easy. CD with it is great also.

  • April 25, 2008 Chopin Waltzes for the aspiring.

    I love this book. At first glance there doesn't seem to be anything 'intermediate' about this and to be honest I wondered if I'd gotten something that was too 'easy' for me. But I had a go at one of the pieces and then listened to the CD...

    . Well! The inspiration hit and I've been more motivated than ever.
