The Fourth or Mazeppa is my favorite and I think Berezovsky's interpretation is spot on. The entire DVD is amazing. The fifth and tenth (Appasionata) are both so vibrant and captivating and I think recorded in 2001 so ten years ago. Mazeppa is a beast to practice and learn. I am now going to go after the 5th.

For me it's a toss-up between #10 and #11

For acrobatic thrills, the A minor. For erotic thrills, Ricordanza.

Don't take it the wrong way when I say I don't have a favorite. There just isn't one that particularly sticks out to me, because they are all pretty good to me.

2, 4, 10, 11 & 12 are the only ones with musical interest for me. If I had to pick a favorite among those it would be hard, but I might go for 11. 11 along with HR#2 and Liebestraume #3 was one of the first pieces I knew by Liszt, and its adventuresome and innovative harmonies pushed my little brain a lot as I was just beginning to engage with listening to lengthier pieces in my late childhood. I still remember fondly the weeks-long process of disliking it but forcing myself to listen to it, to being bewildered but interested, to loving it.

My favorites are #5 and #10, followed, perhaps, by #8.

The fifth has such a mischievous yet mysterious quality, and the pianism of it is astonishing....I think Ravel thought of this etude while composing Ondine.

The 10th, of course, is very passionate but it also has some tenderly romantic moments, such as near the beginning of the recapitulation, when it goes into the key of C major/ a minor, and then traveling into Db....very sensitive.

Even though Liszt is/was known as a virtuoso showman, he clearly is a composer of noticeable depth and sensitivity....I also like his etudes better than Chopin's.

As pieces of music, so do I.
