        This volume is absolutely superb. Although as with a lot of Dover's Music, it is not always as clear as it otherwise could be (compared to the print quality of say Henle or Barenheiter), but this hardly a problem to worry about. To be included in every serious pianist's collection! The pieces are brilliant for those that are of a high standard, and want to start exploring the wider performance repertoire (I'm doing the Valse-Caprice No.1 in a competition in London at the end of April). Add to your basket now!
