      Schirmer are my favourite publisher. Nice and clear. Would've only been better if plastic ring bound.
      Pieces seem to be fairly easy then get gradually harder....probably as Grieg became more experienced.

      It is the same version as the one I lost.
      The baseline at the beginning has been scored with 2 - 7 ledger lines which makes it a nightmare for sight reading, my previous version had exactly the same notes but scored an octave higher with the 8vb notation. Much easier to follow.

      A dramatic piece that starts off slow but then builds up into a dramatic crescendo. The piece has a lot of very low and very high parts which make it hard work for your fingers. I love it and play it all the time.
