Volume 12 of Chopin's Complete Works for the Piano contains some fabulous pieces, which reflect the composer's highly developed technique and mastery of the instrument. In all styles of touch, the evenness of Chopin's scales and passages was unsurpassed and he played with such clarity and elegance. Therefore, in mastering Chopin's compositions the pianist must first master Chopin's own style of playing in order to truly execute the piece. This collection of miscellaneous compositions is ideal for advancing and accomplished players who are looking to extend their repertoire with some of Chopin's lesser known, but equally impressive pieces for solo piano.
This edition ahs been edited and fingered by Carl Mikuli - who also provides an introductory note - and includes historical and analytical comments by James Huneker.
