  • May 25, 2013 Good edition

    This edition of the complete waltzes, nocturnes and preludes is a bargain. Still the printing is very good and clear. The book is bounded in such a way that the book stays open on any page. Two remarks: 1) There could be a bit more fingering in some pieces and...

    2) some of the posthumous pieces have some uncommon details compared to other editions.

  • January 06, 2011 A perfect edition for most

    This is a complete edition of Chopin's preludes, nocturnes, and waltzes, including pieces that weren't published in Chopin's lifetime. This edition does have editorial markings throughout, so if you are participating in competitions, in college, or a professional musician, I would get a different edition (maybe a...

    Henle or one edited by Paderewski). For everyone else, this is a perfect edition at an excellent price. The fingerings are very helpful (for the most part-for instance, how is one supposed to play the big chord in prelude #20?), the dynamics sound good (even if some of them aren't original to Chopin), and it's relatively easy to read. My favorite pieces in this book are prelude #4 (simple but in my opinion one of Chopin's most emotional works), prelude #19 (extremely difficult and hypnotizingly beautiful), and the Grand Valse Brillante.

  • August 24, 2008 A Good Collection

    A must have for Chopin fans. These pieces are not edited too heavily, but they are not in the most easy to read form. I prefer them to the Alfred series. A good collection and the price is amazing. I would buy this again.
