    Difficulty Level:
  • July 05, 2007 Kinderscenen Op 15 is a lovely book.

    I am a retired piano teacher of 34 years. I bought this book primarily for Traumeri. Mine was in terrible shape. I rate it 4 because I found a mistake in "Of Strange Lands and People". 8th measure, treble clef, second note should be G.
