    'Ondine'..as for me the most beautiful piece of Ravel's 'Gaspard'. Very difficult to play correctly but worth to spend time on it. Ever seen Chin Yun Hu playing it? It's like ballet on the keys..thrilling, indeed...

  • June 02, 2006 The best I've seen

    Schirmer's publication has wonderfully clear and readable typeset, and the editor has thoughtfully suggested fingering. It is a terrific publication.

  • August 11, 2004 Tremendous readability

    I think what matters most in an edition of a piece such as Gaspard de la Nuit is that it be eminently readable, and this Schirmer edition is as light and clear as Ondine itself. I am an advanced pianist with many, many years of experience (have been playing since...

    the age of 5), and the tremendous challenges of this great work by Ravel, while not made any easier by the edition, are at least not further clouded by ambiguities in notes, accidentals and other markings. In addition, the book itself opens easily, lies flat, and allows for facile page turning (although ideally, you should have someone turn the pages for you). Trust me, if you buy this edition, you'll be able to see every note easily... but good luck playing the thing!
