This book is a mixed bag of emotions for me, but I gave it four stars because the music is excellent and I know that I will get use out of the book. Features 11 songs from the movie (listed in other reviews).
-The book itself is beautiful, including several pages of artwork from the movie.
-The music is represented fairly well, sounding a lot like it does in the movie and on the soundtrack.
-There are some tricky parts, but overall I would say the music is very playable for advanced and intermediate pianists. (I've been playing for 18 years.)
-Songs are represented as they are on the soundtrack with full musical interludes.
-Most of the vocal harmonies are written out, with the exception of some of the more challenging parts of "Fixer Upper," but those harmonies are most likely what is given in the piano part.
-Melody is doubled in the piano part. This is a BIG negative for me because I do a lot of singing and performing, so I prefer to have the piano accompaniment. This also makes some of the songs harder to play than they should be because you are trying to catch rhythms from the vocal line instead of focusing on (usually) more simplistic/repetitive phrases in the accompaniment.
-This is super nit-picky, but there is a "D.S. al Coda" in "Let It Go." I realize that these are used to save ink/pages in printing, but to me this makes the song harder to play because you're dealing with extra page turns back and forth, trying to find where you are in the music, instead of simply being able to move forward. This also uniforms how all of the choruses sound in the song, whereas in the movie the first chorus is more delicate and it becomes more powerful each time you come back to the repeated phrase.
The music is great, of course, but I was disappointed in how the four chorus pieces were presented. Most pieces are notated with only a single vocal line, and all of the vocal parts are notated in the treble clef.
Frozen Heart: This piece is for male chorus, but it's written in the treble clef, and with only a single solo line through most of the piece. There's only one phrase where multiple voices are shown, and the harmony that I hear on the recording is nowhere to be found.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman: Very good.
For the First Time in Forever: I would have preferred that the section where Anna & Elsa are singing together be notated as separate staffs, rather than shoving them onto the same staff, but oh well.
Life is an Open Door: Hans is notated in the treble clef, but at least it's separate staffs for the two parts.
Let It Go: There's a D.S. al Coda that makes the page turns awkward, it only saved one page of printing in a nine page piece. Other than that, good.
Reindeers Are Better Than People: Again, it's for a male voice, so bass clef would be more appropriate here.
In Summer: This one is more for tenor than bass, so at least the treble clef is somewhat appropriate. (They still should have put the "8" underneath it to make it tenor clef.)
For the First Time in Forever (Reprise) Very good. Anna & Elsa have separate staffs this time.
Fixer Upper: Harmony is almost completely missing from this chorus piece. There's two notes listed where it's two soloists together, but where it's a group, there's only one note listed. At the end, where the chorus of trolls are repeating "true love" over and over, there's only one line shown.
