This is the best edition of the Mazas Studies widely available - and the only edition of the Mazas Studies widely available!
With all three volumes crammed into one book, you will get a big saving on the price - and one big music stand because it precariously balances like a heavyweight gymnast on mine...
Everything is here, from the god-sent contents page to the fingerings and bowings you cannot deviate from without missing the point entirely. My advice would be to use these studies very often. Why? Because they are incredibly enjoyable to play, despite being technical studies, and so that one day, you might finally be able to keep the book open without the use of mallets, clips, or just whatever it is that will tame this collection.
So, if you want to keep things organised, get the individual volumes for a higher price. But, if you are like me, and you like your books big, go for this one.
