    I used musescore to adjust strength and speed on every notes and bars before generated the mid file, so that the interpretation would not so "robot". liszt Hungarian rhapsody no.1 liszt Hungarian rhapsody no.2

    Hello! Liszt is to me one of the greatest piano composer (the greatest when it comes to programme music). So i was wondering ego were your own personal favourite pianists when it comes to this outstanding, magical and enthralling composer?
  3. Identifying Classical Music
    So this is one of my favorite symphonies and I'm curious as to how I can tell the two versions apart. From what I've read, it seems the only difference is that Liszt added 10 or 16 (depending on the source) bars to the 2nd movement of the 1880 version. I tried finding these bars by reading the...

    Greetings, Short: I'm trying to find a score for Franz Liszt's Six Hungarian Rhapsodies for single piano, four hands (duet). The Searle catalog number is S.621. I'm looking for score to purchase and annotate in the long term, but I would also like a score to use temporarily (library, online...

    List Your Favorite Liszt Recordings... the ones you can't live without. Or would never "unsave" from your Spotify, or whatever.

    Who else thinks that Daniil Trifonov is the best young pianist? This new release proves it, imo. Everything is there:virtuosity and finesse, poetry, a sense of breathing and music just naturally flowing, never feeling forced. Must listen! :tiphat:
  7. Orchestral Music
    Xaver Scharwenka wrote four Piano Concerti. The first was a major success. Liszt praised it, the waspish von Bulow's initial dismissive attitude turned into positive appraisal after hearing the work, Tchaikovsky (!) held it in high esteem. Mahler played its first movement in his only recorded...

    Following on from a question I posted the other day (thank you those who responded) I was wondering if anyone has anywhere online that gives a breakdown of the variations in Totentanz on the Dies Irae plainchant melody? Or if anyone has any information on them and how they are varied? Again...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    Another question for you guys. I'm tasked with analysing Totentanzand I was wondering if anyone else gets the impression that is in a way a single movement concerto? If so, where do you think the so-called slow movements starts? It does feel like we have the orchestral exposition and piano...
  10. Solo & Chamber Music
    I have a few of these transcriptions by Liszt from Wagner's operas; I think there are 16 in all. The ones I have are by Barenboim on DGG. Does anyone have any sets that they like in particular? I'd prefer to get a complete set. Thanks.

    Here might be a hard one, which say you - Chopin or Liszt? Thank you for discussing. :)
  12. Keyboard Instruments
    Shamefully, I have only just discovered that Liszt transcribed all of Beethoven's symphonies for piano. As far as I can ascertain, four complete cycles are available by Idil Beret, Cyprien Katsaris, Leslie Howard and Konstantin Scherbakov. I imagine that there are other recordings of...
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    Trying to find a good piece to end a concert I'm doing. One of the most successful I've ever had was the Liszt transcription of the Polonaise from Eugene Onegin. For some reason, audiences seem to love that. Any suggestions for something new? Have looked at other Liszt but am not taken with...

    This morning I received an invitation for a duel (not a drinking contest) from a fellow TC member. I have after no hesitation decided to accept your dare for me to listen to Franz Lizst for a whole month. I have set some ground rules for the dare modified from your rather ambiguous post here...

    As I mentioned elsewhere on the forum, I've recently finished reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The book's two main protagonists, Aziraphale the angel and Crowley the demon, work together to avert the Apocalypse because they are rather fond of life on Earth. There is a lot...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    This piece gives me nightmares. I have tried a number of fingerings to play fluidly in a way that doesn't hurt my hands. I would truly, sincerely, greatly appreciate it if someone could give me a set of fingerings for at least the 2nd page of the piece. Thank you so much. -My hands are about...

    If you aren't familiar with this piece, it's amazing: Liszt's Faust Symphony
  18. Solo & Chamber Music
    Liszt transcribed all of Schubert's songs for piano only. I prefer those transcriptions to the original songs. I think this is partly because the piano and human voice do not gel perfectly, and partly the engineering / mastering often does not get the balance right. Does anyone else prefer...
  19. Recorded Music and Publications
    Hi all, I just released my first album of my live performances of various transcriptions by Godowsky, Earl Wild, Arcadi Volodos, Busoni, and more , as well as the Liszt Sonata in B minor. You can find it here: Or Itunes: best Jiyang...

    I've recently been experiencing a rapid growth in my reading ability and I'm just having so much fun with it. I was hoping this thread could serve two purposes: How good are you at sight reading, and how do you think it affects your playing overall? Of course, you can elaborate further than the...
