  • March 23, 2009 Not the old Dover edition!

    This edition is not the same editor (i.e. not the same fingerings) as the older Dover Paderewski edition. However, this edition is still very good. A tremendous value in that all of the Preludes and Etudes are in one book.

  • August 25, 2008 Great Version

    These are some of the most beautiful piano pieces, and this version is such a great one to learn from or to have. It also has some fairly good fingerings as well.

  • September 24, 2007 Chopin Strikes Again!

    The title doesn't lie; this is definitely a complete collection of some of Chopin's Preludes and Etudes in their true form. This is for upper intermediate to advanced pianists!!! NOT FOR BEGINNERS!!!

    Well it is what is says. It's the complete list of Preludes and Etudes by Chopin. Some of the notation could be rearranged in a nicer fashion so it's easier to read. For example, the Revolutionary Study, Op. 10, no. 12 is sometimes confusing the way it's...

    notated--the notes are all there, it's just that I've seen them arranged in a better fashion. But not a bad price for all the Etudes if you ask me!

    This book is very advanced. Be prepared for interesting hand motions as you cross fingers over and play very quickly as you work your way through this book.
