    hardest one. Great edition. Barenreiter is always good in printing, binding, etc.

  • May 01, 2008 Wow, I never knew ordering sheet music could be so

    Excellent score, well scholared and easy to read which is delight with this publication company. However the piece itself is difficult to perform but is very majestic.
