    I bought this for the Melody from Orfeo Ed Eurodice which is the Sgambati arrangement that I'd heard James Rhodes play. It is the same one - the only book I could find it in. It's beautiful but a challenge to play as it's on 3 staves so you have to concentrate to figure out which hand plays which notes. Worth it though. I haven't played much of the other pieces yet - I'm putting a Spotify playlist of them all together so I can get familiar with what they sound like.
