    play this expressively. it is tranquil, (moonlight on water, etc.), but with a touch of something dark and mysterious; quivering.

    I have always loved this piece and decided to order it. It is really a little harder than I imagined, the sharps just seem to throw me. Not something I could just sit down and play, had to struggle a bit, but definitely worth the challenge. Exquisite piece written by...

    a master. Again, helps to listen to the actual arrangement. Can always find on the internet.

    If I can play this original arrangement and you are reading this, you can play it too. An easily recognizable and well liked piece that you and anyone who listens to you will enjoy.

    This is a must have for any classical pianist. I find myself practicing for a couple of hours without realizing how much time went by. If you are at the intermediate level, you can get this piece down pretty fast if you get in a groove and become entranced by...

    the beauty and emotion of this masterpiece.
