    This edition is excellent. The written notes are excellent and the notation is easy to read! This is not true of all editions of the Preludes.

    Chopin's Preludes are absolutely beautiful and every pianist should learn some. This edition is very useful with several pages of notes on Chopin's playing style in the front and other miscellaneous notes throughout. Palmer has edited this piece wonderfully and I highly recommend it!

  • January 19, 2008 excellent

    The preludes are set out clearly on white paper rather than cream and the notes at the bottom of the pages are very useful.Music as challenging as this necessitates useful and constructive notes and comments - well done! Perhaps I should be looking at your books on chopin waltzes and...

    Even better than Bach's Well Tempered Clavier - Chopin wrote one in every key
