    This is a wonderful compilation of Chopin's waltzes. Incredible well made and bound, and the notations are coherent and easy to decipher.

  • May 13, 2008 New Peters Urtext Chopin Waltzes

    I found the new Peters Urtext edition of the Chopin Waltzes to be more of an academic exercise. If you're looking to examine and understand the genesis of these wonderful pieces, this is edition will provide that information. This is not a performance oriented edition since it does not...

    contain any suggested fingerings other than Chopin's own which are sparse. As usual with Peters the layout is beautifully clear except for the pages with alternative "versions and variants". Those pages are somewhat confusing.

    I was very happy with this book which was an updated edition of a book that I had owned for many years. I was also pleased with the delivery, which was faster than promised.
