  • November 11, 2013 HUGE disappointment!

    I gave this one star only because I couldn't give it zero. Most of these pieces are very, very short. And they are just plain uninteresting or outright ugly. Almost nothing in here is recognizable, which is fine, but it feels like someone was trying to use the scraps...

    of unwanted pieces to put into a book and make a buck. I am a lover of piano music and have a huge library of such, but this will be the first (and hopefully only) piano book I have bought that will go into the garbage. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

  • January 13, 2012 Classical Piano music for Christmas

    I was thrilled to see the choices and variety of genres/composers. It wasn't what I expected, but glad to see what was included. True classical pieces, that was written for Christmas in the composer's time. This doesn't mean it would be for church. But great for...

    recitals or those "play" for family fun and enjoyment. The level of pieces are from intermediate to early advanced.

  • December 12, 2011 Classical piano music

    I was not thrilled with the selections. Some are more difficult than others. I would never be interested in Bartok's music which is included in this book. A few of Cesar Franck's are nice and easy, but not memorable. I was hoping for something else in the classical...

    Christmas music and just didn't find it.

  • November 03, 2008 The best of all!

    This collection of Classical Christmas Music is the only one I found with really good Christmas music. To quote a sentence in the Foreword "the aim of this collection is to provide some of the best seasonal piano pieces available" It certainly does just that, and there is also terrific...
