The actual instrumentation is incredibly sparse, with piano as its main backbone. This makes this sheet music very accurate with every beautiful note or feature there before your eyes ready to play. You must be a pretty reasonable pianist, I'd rank the music Grade 5/6 standard. This book is a must have for any auditions for musicals.

This musical is amazing!!
The sheet music is largely unedited and poses a series of immensely difficult rhythmic and melodic motifs, the opening 'The New World' is included with full parts for 4 singers. Each song is a story in itself and each is immensely stretching and challenging for the singer.
A pianist looking for a challenge will immediately fall in love with Brown's fantastic syncopation and very high phrases!!
This book will take you quite literally by storm
