Many piano scores are visually cluttered, possibly to save space and printing costs.They are printed on rubbishy paper and are a great dampener on wanting to spend the time necessary to master a piece. Some are so compressed that they have the ambience of an El Greco painting. Not so the Dover editions of piano music! They are nicely spaced and show crisp, black notes on quality, firm paper. They are aesthetically excellent and makes one feel relaxed to practice the works. The Dover Complete Schubert Pianoforte Sonatas contains the great D major work, the hauntingly beautiful second movement of which was used in that fine French film,"Tous Les Matins du Monde", starring Gerard Depardieu. This sonata seems to be missing in some of the other so-called "complete" sets. Also, it is great to have all the sonatas in one volume,as in the Dover edition. In sum, a most satisfying,useful contribution to the making of Schubert's piano sonatas better known to pianists,as they so deserve.

This Dover edition of the sometimes undervalued Schubert sonatas is by Julius Epstein and originates from the Breitkopf and Hartel complete works edition. There are no performance notes and the 'lay flat sewn-binding' of 290 odd pages will not last forever. However, at this price, still an outstanding bargain for all piano students who wish acquaint themselves with these scores.

I waited anxiously for the arrival of this book as the price seemed to good to be true. However, I am delighted with it. The pages are clear and easy to read and it will give many hours of pleasure to anyone able to tackle the Schubert Sonatas.

A great edition of these works. Not the clearest print (a bit cramped) but the sheer volume of music makes this an impressive book.
