  • December 26, 2007 Excellant edition.

    Here's a clean, clear edition of this wonderful piece. Good notes throughout and the pedaling suggestions follow Gershwin's advice that less is better than more. Also, in this case, the open spacing of the score makes it easy to read and therefore more accessible for a talented teenager...

    to study. Congradulations Mr. Hinson for a job well done.
