    Absolutely fantastic .. especially because the CD has both the full violin and piano pieces as well as just the piano versions for violin practice. Nice separate violin sheets. Very enjoyable arrangements too.

    Nice book. The CD is nice to practice with. Notvery difficult, although as one works through the book, the pieces begin to require more dexterity.

    These are great Puccini pieces. Comes with CD. The only problem is that the violin part is quite easy while the piano is very difficult. Highly recommended PROVIDED it fits with the performer skill level for each instrument.
