    This book is an excellent buy and defiantly one for the Chopin fanatics out there. Not only does the book have a short biography of Chopin at the start, but it also has useful bits of information and performance notes above every piece, which I must say - are presented beautifully...

    . It includes pieces of a much easier standard (a couple of Mazurka's), too pieces of greater difficulty such as the Fantasie-Impromptu and the Etude in E major. An absolute must buy for any piano player, whether you're Professional, or are just having a bit of fun. This book has something for everyone!

  • April 01, 2008 Wonderful collection - fuzzy print!

    Excellant collection rangeing from the late intemediate Mazurkas and Waltzs to the more advanced Fantasie-Impromptu and a Polonaise. The problem is that the print is quite fuzzy. Alfred has better editions and so do others.
