It is a joy to be able to "grip" this beautiful music by playing it with your own hands. With this sheet, Rach comes within reach of an amateur. Well arranged, in the oringinal key D-flat major. The fast successive big chords with many fingers are avoided, but the essence of the melody and the orchestral accompaniment is preserved and have nice low bass tones. The only thing missing is the fingering. But an intermediate pianist should be able to find out for him/herself. The resolution/readability of the printing is good.

Wonderful Transcription

Much of Rachmaninoff's piano music requires an advanced technique but this wonderful transcription makes this beautiful piece of music more accessible. As a professional wedding pianist, it's great to have it in my repertoire and it's such a delight to play.
