2.0 out of 5 stars Great collection, poor typesetting April 13 2012

Size and breadth of collection: 5 stars
Typesetting: 0 stars

To be clear, when I refer to typesetting I'm talking about the way the notes and staves look. The typesetting style changes several times in the collection, which is visually unappealing. In the modern ages of computers, there is no reason for this dissimilarity. My biggest dissapointment is the typesetting for Gymnopédie I, which is difficult to read and uses ink so light it's almost grey. The manuscript notes "copyright 1969" so I'm guessing they're using a 43 year old printing, which again is ridiculous in the modern age of computers. The piece is in the public domain even, so why use this old printing that is ugly and a little difficult to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap binding for excellent music Dec 12 2011
By J. Williams - Published on Amazon.com

I love the composer, but the publisher could have produced a more substantial book of his music. I took the book to a local printer who put it into a spiral binding. I came home and added very heavy cardboard to front and back covers just to keep the music standing up straight when I'm at the piano. I don't get it -- why would a publisher produce a flimsy book for such wonderful music?
