  • February 17, 2010 Good Stuff here...

    This Esipoff edition is the closest one can come to an approximation of the orchestral sweep of this music. Small quibbles with distribution of the notes between the hands, but, still, plays and sounds well.

  • December 12, 2009 Should have higher SMP Rating

    This is a great book but it is not a SMP level 7 'Late Intermediate'. All other reviewers must be concert pianists because to play at full speed requires a TON of skill.

  • July 08, 2009 The Perfect Challenge!

    I bought this book as something to work towards, and I'm at the point where I can open it and happily play it. The music is beautiful. I was looking for a challenge, and I got it out of this book. Once you get it down, it's very...

    simple. I recommend it!

  • January 15, 2008 A Popular Ballet

    This popular holiday work, Tchaikovsky's famed ballet "The Nutcracker," is well served in these admirable arrangements of several of the most attractive dances from the score. Some of the arrangements are for the intermediate level, and a few are for more advanced pianists.

  • January 10, 2008 Just what I was looking for.

    Wonderful arrangements of the compositions for an advanced pianist. The pieces are not that difficult but do require some piano skill.Where else could you get this folio at such a modest price. Thank you for being there Sheet Music Plus.
