    There are countless obvious mistakes, including one movement which has the wrong key signature (the second Bourree in the A major suite is supposed to be in A minor, but the A major key signature is still shown). The beaming in some of the courantes are hopeless. I lost track...

    of all the wrong notes and missing D#s in the E minor suite.

  • 2003-04-18 00:00:00.0 This is a horrible reprinting

    Although this is extraordinary music the reprinting by Kalmus is cheesy and very uncomfortable to use. The original Kalmus edition with the beautiful soft green cover was a complete joy to read from. It was 87 pages with very clear printing. The new one is 158 pages! The pieces seem...

    to go on endlessly. Many of the extra page turns are in very awkward places. A few measures seem to fill up the page. Make sure you have a couple of paper weights to hold the book open. All told if you have the original version treasure its quality and have it rebound rather than waste your time with this cheap copy.
