    This collection includes all of Stravinsky's pieces that were either composed for or arranged for violin and piano (and one viola solo arranged for violin). I haven't played all the selections in it, but the ones I'm familiar with are wonderful (it's Stravinsky --- what do you...

    expect). The piano score binding is sewn in signatures, so it will lie flat (once you've broken it in); the notation is clear; the parts are well laid out (good page turns). The price is unbelievable. If you bought everything in this collection separately, it would cost you $146.85; at $24.95, the price per page (for piano and violin parts) is about 12 cents --- you could hardly photocopy it for this price. And this is not a republication of some old version; it's Boosey & Hawkes (the best/only edition for most of these) --- at a Dover Edition price. You can't go wrong with this. Sorry for foaming at the mouth; I'm just very enthusiastic about this collection.
