Schirmer Performance Editions are designed for piano students and their teachers as well as for professional pianists. Pedagogical in nature, these editions offer insightful interpretive suggestions, pertinent fingering, and historical and stylistic commentary. Prepared by renowned artists/teachers, these publications provide an accurate, well-informed score resource for pianists. The name Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) is synonymous with the piano. Indeed, every one of his compositions includes the instrument. His Preludes, several of which are of only moderate difficulty, show superb polish and inventive detail. Shaped by the tastes of the Parisian aristocratic salon, these pieces make the most of a pianist's technical and musical abilities, both in passages of virtuosity and in the variety of possibilities for emotional expression. Editor & recording artist: Brian Ganz

This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 7-10.

  • September 22, 2014 Beatiful edition

    Great layout.. With some preludes including hundreds of tiny notes, it really makes a difference to have a well spaced format. Inspiring insights from the editor and awesome recording. As a whole, the 24 preludes are very demanding, and it helps to have an edition like this.

  • July 24, 2011 Chopin Preludes.

    The Chopin Preludes are Magical and are poetry in music. There is no easy Chopin,only relative easy Chopin. All are contained in this wonderful work.Some could be described as difficult as the Studies. Everybody will have their own particular favourite prelude.Is No.15 the real Raindrop prelude...

    ? In my opinion,No.6 is more like Raindrops.In my opinion no one plays them better than Friedrich Gulda. See Decca LXT2837. The Opus 45 Prelude in Csharp minor is a wonderful work and MAGICAL to play.

  • October 18, 2005 Must Have!

    This is a must have score for any pianist, student, teacher, performer. The score is meticulously edited by an obvious master of Chopin. The insight he adds in his text sheds new light on these classic pieces. To add even more value to this score, the CD is even included...

    to my delight. What an amazing performance of the Preludes! I can't give this edition enough praise!
