    Well, I don't do critiques of members' playing (I antagonize them enough already), and I will extend that policy to cover your friend. I'll just suggest that the Liszt B minor is extremely difficult to get right (meaning an interpretation that 'works'). This difficulty is on top of getting enough of the notes right to avoid the unkindness of strangers.

    I didn't watch/listen to the Youtube presentation, so nothing here should be construed as relevant.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I don't like this particular piece by Liszt, but you friend did a solid job.

    If your friend can play Liszt's Annes de Pelerinage (a piece I like) I would definitely give up a more insightful opinion.
