  • May 17, 2019 Why I liked Pictures

    This product is very high quality, and there are many notes about different versions. I definitely liked the product itself, because this is one of my favorite pieces for the piano. Mussorgsky showed his love for art through his interpretations of different portraits of certain events, with the "Promenade" scattered...

    throughout in different variations. Even though I said that this was for advanced players, not all of the movements are this difficult, for example "The Old Castle". These pieces can be played selectively, or as an entirety, and is a good suite for program music.

    Can't get better than Henle and the finger suggestions are spot on. Quality of the publication and contents are very good and as expected.

  • June 20, 2013 excellent urtext

    Compared to the Wiener version, which doesn't have fingering suggestions, the Henle edition stands alone as the best urtext (I always prefer fingering suggestions). I bought three different urtexts, and this is the one I kept. I'm not a Henle devotee by any means, but in this case...

    , their version is superior. P.S. The reviewer who gave it two stars is wrong about the dynamic markings - they're exactly where they should be. Two stars for this edition represents nothing more than ignorance shrouded in anger. And fingering suggestions are exactly that - "suggestions." If you don't like them, cross them out and insert your own like everyone else does.

  • May 24, 2008 Not up to Henle standards

    It used to be that I counted on Henle editions for excellent editors and fingering. However, this one has errors that were so blatant that I didn't notice them at first out of sheer disbelief. Take measure 5 of "Limoges, le marché". Their sf markings aren't even on...

    the beat! The fingering is also regularly poor and often involves things like moving 5 over 1 when 4 would do perfectly. I will think twice before purchasing a Henle edition online that I haven't had an opportunity to inspect.
