"This edition includes all of Rachmaninoff's Preludes from op. 23, op. 32, and also the intensely popular op. 3 no. 2 C-sharp minor prelude. This completeness is not found in many other editions. The printing is clean, well-spaced and big, and the ink is dark. The cover is very high in quality, and the binding is secure. As a bonus, the edition includes a brief background to the composer and the pieces, as well as some extremely brief commentary on the pieces including editorial notes. If there was one thing I could wish, it would be that the page didn't flip itself so easily. All said, likely the best edition of Rachmaninoff's Preludes published to date."
