Description

(Schirmer Performance Editions). Schirmer Performance Editions are designed for piano students and their teachers as well as for professional pianists. Pedagogical in nature, these editions offer insightful interpretive suggestions, pertinent fingering, and historical and stylistic commentary. Prepared by renowned artists/teachers, these publications provide an accurate, well-informed score resource for pianists. The name Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) is synonymous with the piano. Indeed, every one of his compositions includes the instrument. His Preludes , several of which are of only moderate difficulty, show superb polish and inventive detail. Shaped by the tastes of the Parisian aristocratic salon, these pieces make the most of a pianist's technical and musical abilities, both in passages of virtuosity and in the variety of possibilities for emotional expression. Includes audio recordings. Editor & recording artist: Brian Ganz

    Uh... Schirmer is the worst publisher for Chopin. I recommend Paderewski, Henle Urtext, or Peters. Students often choose Shirmer because it's so cheap compared with the other editions, but this is music a person keeps for life and it's important to have quality editions. Schirmer editions all too often have simplify some of the technical aspects of the music, which can support some bad habits. Students learning serious music need the best possible editions.

    I recommend Paderewski, Henle Urtext, or Peters.

    I will say that some Liszt in the Schirmer books is good, but make sure it was edited by Rafael Joseffy, who worked personally with Liszt. In general, I advise avoiding Schirmer. Period. You could not pay me to use a Schirmer book. Any teacher who is okay with these Schirmer editions is a teacher I would never send a student to.
