    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.

  • July 17, 2009 My Favorite Music and Arrangement

    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.

  • February 28, 2009 Good, but not in the original key.

    This is a simplified arrangement and it is not in the original key. A solo version that is more faithful to the original can be found in the book "24 Piano Transcriptions of Classical Masterpieces." Look for "24 Piano Transcriptions - 2nd Edition." here on Sheet Music Plus.
