    Difficulty Level:
  • May 25, 2017 Edition not recomended

    Purchased for Op 3, number 1. Not recommended due to: - Over-edited: pedaling added, not located in other editions; and the added pedaling is inconsistent for the intent of the piece. - Print errors regarding notation - Important phrasing omitted: in particular the notation at the end makes it appear that there...

    are not enough beats in the measure because the original grouping into triplets was omitted and a bar line was added by the editor which is not warranted and creates less beats per measure than the time signature

    Difficulty Level:
  • July 26, 2012 Great edition and fingering

    This is great music and yet on the easier side for Rachmaninoff. He wrote these Opus 3 pieces as a young man and many of them immediately became repertoire. I enjoy this edition in particular for its natural fingering. I decided to buy this one instead of a cheaper edition...

    and I am glad I did.
