  • November 15, 2014 Another disappointment from Steinway

    This book of beautiful standards is not "intermediate"; it is easy and dumbed down. As usual with these Steinway volumes, which I keep buying like a gambling addict gambles--maybe because I love my Steinway--there is an unpleasant surprise. First, there are no words as ARE included in all...

    others in this series. That pales in aggravation, however, to the arrangements and endless chord "opportunities" included. I understand that without the interminable meddling Steinway has to perform either they couldn't market public domain or tie together old sheet music into these sleek black volumes, but at least either TRY the originals as they stand and see if that wouldn't sell or print the originals with the newly arranged cocktail lounge versions.

    Simply Elegant Piano is an excellent book to partner Simply Beatiful Piano. I particularly like Preston Keys Arrangements and would definitely purchase further books, when published,of similar difficulty.
