- “Right away, let me say this is first rate material . . . Great
attention to detail is evident throughout the whole edition and this is a
must for Chopin fans . . . years ago, I wanted to play
Chopin on my guitar but many editions failed to live up to expectations.
This one does work, does sound good and it is from the exact period. I am
glad to have this and feel certain that anyone remotely interested in Chopin
will also want a copy. Print and layout is excellent as per the Orphée
standards.” Neil Smith Classical Guitar
- “This is a scholarly presentation of eight Chopin Mazurkas transcribed
by Jan Bobrowicz, a contemporary and countryman of Chopin. Editing for this
edition is by Dutch guitarist Jan de Kloe, who provides detailed critical
notes on his work. An interesting introduction is provided by Matanya Ophee.
Most of these pieces are short and fall somewhere in the high intermediate
level of difficulty. Perhaps the most difficult thing would be in getting
some of them up to the very fast metronome speeds indicated. I enjoyed
reading these pieces. The edition is beautifully done. If you have an
interest in trying some Chopin on the guitar, this collection would be a
good way to start.” Richard Turner Soundboard
