A delightful arrangement which captures the spirit of the orchestral version. Unfortunately I don't have a second piano....yet!

Partition claire dans sa présentation, bonnes annotations, déchiffrage très aisé.
L'accompagnement piano peut, essentiellement pour le second mouvement, être remplacé par un accompagnement orgue. Ai fait l'expérience avec un partenaire organiste, le rendu était satisfaisant.

Shostakovich's piano concerto no.2 in F has always held a certain magic for me - despite being primarily a wind player. However, after playing this piece in an orchestra for the 11th time, I decided to purchase the music - purely to play the 2nd movement. It is a wonderful piece of music, with the 1st and 3rd movements actually easier to play than I had thought. The 2nd movement is as relaxing to play as to listen too, and the whole concerto is clearly edited and produced. A wonderful purchase resulted from 5 years of debating to buy - but well worth it in the end!

Very easy to read print. This is the only proper version of this available - however slightly frustrating with there being no fingerings throughout the entire score!

Really lovely piece, especially the well known second movement which is very simple for both the orchestra reduction and the piano part, and the other two movements a lot faster and more challenging! Very fun to play and nicely arranged.
