I'm new to Liszt and don't know much Wagner, but right now I'm head over heels in love with Liszt's Sonetto 104 del Petrarca, especially when my teacher plays it. His interpretation makes my knees weak.


Best regards,

Deborah

I'm getting tired of the Liszt B minor sonata, although it's a fantastic work, so I'm going to toss in an obscure transcription that I've always loved.

William Tell Overture (Rossini).

I have a recording of it by François-René Duchable that I like very much. It would probably be less obscure if Liszt hadn't included the first nine minutes. This is a great piece for parties, I wish I could play it.

I don't think Wagner wrote any piano pieces. The only piece I would even recognize is "Ride of the Valkyries".

Liszt: Harmonies Poetiques Et Religieuses:Funerailles.
I read that it was written shortly after Chopin's death and many say its dedicated to him. sort of a farewell/funeral march kind of deal. It makes sense when you listen to it. Begins with a funeral march, then enters into a nocturne-like section. The kicker is the next section when the left hand octaves come in. This very similar to the left hand octave part in the Op. 52 Polonaise,and they also share similar right hand thematic material.

I've also had a pretty strong affinity to the 8th trancendental etude "wild jagd" its such a roller coaster ride.

I've listened to some wagner piano pieces but honestly i didn't like any of it.


"I was obliged to be industrious. Whoever is equally industrious will succeed equally well."

I assumed he meant "Wagner-Liszt," since we know he doesn't worry too much about precision of language.... grin but you're probably right.
