  • January 04, 2013 Use an Urtext Edition Instead

    If you plan on performing any of these pieces, this is not the edition you should buy. I foolishly used this edition to study the 4th Ballade, and then discovered that I had memorized many wrong notes after buying an Urtext edition. This Dover edition is good to have in...

    the library for reading purposes and immediate enjoyment, but if you are going to take the many hours required to memorize and perform one of these pieces, spend a few extra dollars to learn it correctly the first time.

    This is an excellent edition. The fingering is good and the pieces are complete, a better alternative to the ridiculously expensive Urtext editions.

  • March 16, 2007 Chopin is the best school

    Listening to Chopin's music is one of life's greatest pleasures. Following along with the score enhances the experience. Trying to play the more difficult pieces is humbling. But no one with any music in their soul should miss the opportunities presented by all three.

    I absolutely love almost all of the pieces included in this book. The 3rd and 4th ballades are just breathtaking, the fantasie-impromptu is brilliantly beautiful, and the B-flat minor sonata is incredible (the first movement is the best). A wonderful book.
