    Excellent piano solo arrangements of symphony excerpts that you wouldn't think were possible. The Beethoven ones are especially a lot of fun to play.

    This music is sufficiently complete to give you the right idea of the chords and transitions. There is a lot from which to choose. I purchased it for the Resurrection chorale.
