    Palm Springs, CA
    Difficulty Level:
  • June 13, 2017 Really really difficult

    I'm a fairly advanced pianist and play professionally (and have lots of Sondheim scores). This volume is extraordinarily difficult. Much as I would love to be able to play these songs, I had to return it. "No One is Alone" was reasonably manageable, but the rest, no way.
