    This is a beast of a concerto and the cadenza is incredibly difficult. It is a beautiful piece and this is a fine edition. My only complaint is that it is very overpriced.

  • December 09, 2010 Wonderful Concerto, Good Edition

    This definitely not a piece to take lightly! Very dramatic and every movement brings it's own interpretive and technical challenges. The first movement's cadenza is quite a test of endurance, but in good hands you can ignore the technique and just listen to the beautiful structure of it...

    all. Only concern about the edition is the price... lets get a reasonable one on these Prokofiev concerti, please. How else are poor music majors expected to learn them all without going broke!

  • August 09, 2009 great edition, maybe overpriced slightly

    this is easily the most difficult piano concerto ever written. And I've learned all the hard ones, the brahms second, the rachmaninov second and third, the prokofiev second and third, and this is easily the most difficult. Large chords with jumps, beautiful in its own respect, and virtuostic. Specifically...

    the cadenza from the first movement, ten pages long and requiring four hands, you have to have both hands constantly moving

  • February 10, 2008 A masterpiece...

    I've started to learn the first movement and I understand why people were saying that this is one of the hardest Piano Concerto. The first movement contains a long cadenza, wich is as technicly difficult as dramatic. Good luck everybody, it's not an easy piece but it's...

    a great challenge.
