    Agree. They are as brilliant (and difficult) as Liszt's, but absolutely Russian. Have it by Malcom Binns. Hope to find someday the classical recording by Ketner.

    Sorabji wrote 100 Transcendental Etudes. No. 100 is 45 minutes long! Here is No. 31 (not even one of the especially hard ones!):

    I think a large majority of serious classical music listeners go through a phase where they are obsessed with Russian Romantic/early 20th century composers haha.
