I really enjoy the music of Rameau and this book is a delight for any pianist of intermediate to advanced level.

Do not hesitate to purchase this if you are after anything by Rameau - this does indeed appear to be the complete works, we'll laid out, spaced nicely, and the string binding means with a bit of effort it will lay flat. And of course the pieces are the most beautiful harpsichord pieces ever.

This edition was 'dulled down' mainly by Saint Sean. He changed the score to make it easier to play on the piano. This score is far from Urtext.

A good score to buy would be Rampe, Siegbert's Urext of Rameau, but it's rather expensive.

A treasure to have in my collection 17 May 2009
By Nathan Lee Koontz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
How revolutionary Rameau is. Surely he was writing music without any kind of agenda and so his ideas shine without adulteration. This edition of his complete works for keyboard is a joy to own. If I could only have one book of music this would be it. I say this as a pianist. This is important because if I were to play this music on a harpsichord it would be unsatisfying and almost incorrect. It is clearly edited with the piano and it's sustaining abilities in mind. Saint-Saens edited this music and has romantic influence in his editing. I don't think the purist would like this edition very much. The ornamentation is handled with much liberty but only to more suit the piano. If you're a musician who plays everything and thinks you have heard it all you're in for a surprise when you play this music. Just when you think Rameau has started to settle into a typical, lifeless, established baroque styling of a motif he comes out of nowhere with such shocking revelation that you aren't sure what century the music came out of exactly; questioning if you're actually playing a French baroque composer or Scarlatti or Beethoven or Bach or some neo-baroque composer. It is best to not assign any labels to this music and just play it. It will speak directly to your musicality and emotional sense and provide a great deal of joy and satisfaction. You will wonder why you haven't been playing this music sooner or why no one is talking about it. My recommendation is when you first get this music, play the Sarabande on pg. 66 first. Those arpeggios are to die for and it speaks for the taste of the entire book, not to mention those brave and lush harmonies. You will instantly be hooked. Claude Debussy said "Rameau is the greatest french composer ever to live" and I agree. Rameau's music is all gold, no filler. You need to own this book.

The Wrong Edition 31 Jan. 2005
By tduelto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This edition "took such liberties with the original in the matter of ornaments" (cf. C. Girdlestone, Jean-Philippe Rameau; his life and work, rev. & enl. ed.). If you want a reliable and scholarly edition, find the Jacobi one.

Lovely 5 July 2006

This has all the Rameau keyboard works you could ever want. Good binding, good print. Over all, very good book.

The music is beautiful. But the e-book presentation is so small I had to buy reading glasses. 9 May 2013
By Estinea Marwiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beautiful music and an historical feast for the ears. But the music appears to be presented as graphics images. One image corresponding with each page of sheet music. The problem is that it displays a full page in each e-reader page turn and these, then, are very SMALL compared to a normal sheet music presentation. For best results, I need to put the device into portrait disposition. But even then, it's quite a struggle to read many of the notes, especially the accidentals applied to appogiaturas. These are just about impossible to see. I've never used reading glasses before. But with the purchase of this book, I had to go out and buy a pair. Only with the reading glasses am I able to see that the accidental at top of 2nd page is in fact a 'natural' mark.
