    Lovely edition. Great printing on a beautifully clear page. To the reviewer complaining about a lack of fingerings, Barenreiter almost never prints them. Also, if you're playing these, presumably you can work out your own.

    I've received it today. It's a very good edition. But, I was disappointed when I realized that there was no fingering. May be you should specified it on your Website.

  • February 19, 2007 Review of baroque classics arr for piano

    I found these very hard to play-transcriptions of Vivaldi and Marcello concertos arranged for piano. Though I love baroque music, I will have to practice before I can play these with ease. I did try to play the Marcello Oboe concerto on my clarinet, and did better than when...

    I tried the piece on my piano. I made it through approx second year piano major in an "average" music school.
