    Very good arrangement. Better than another version that I bought previously. Who cares whether it is original key or not as long as it sounds perfect. The notes are big and easy to read.

    I love this piece. It is without a doubt my favorite piece of music. I think this is a lovely arrangement for a student who can't play an advanced arrangement. There may be other more faithful editions as stated, but I find them to be extremely difficult.

    I love this music; the sheer sweetness and lyricism of its passages still bring tears to my eyes after many years of playing it. And I love this old Eichhorn/CPP/Belwin arrangement; I always have. It's challenging but perfect for someone looking for an engaging newcomer that quickly...

    becomes an old friend. I was so glad to have found a new uncrinkled copy at Sheet Music Plus.

    Lovely music for advanced students - one of the best known classical pieces, melodic.
