Reviews

(…) young pianists can really benefit from the excellent urtext edition of so many works all in one volume. With facsimiles of the first editions' front covers of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata and Schumann's Waldszenen, most informative, constructive and helpful teaching and performance notes by Nils Franke, and a suggested short list of repertoire that might follow after this selection has been studied, this slim volume at a bargain price is a wonderful asset to all aspiring Grade 8 pianists.
