Hi guys,

do you have any recommendations on pieces similar to Un Sospiro simplified by E. Deppe (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMD6OjeAQqg)?

I am just a beginner but this piece is really motivating me to play as it doesn't have any complicated rhythms, but uses the full keyboard, has some hand crossings, arpeggios, etc. And, well, it sounds beautiful. :-)

Thanks.

I don't do simplified piano music, but I'm sure there are easy simplified versions of Schubert's Ave Maria, Der Müller und der Bach, Litanei auf das Fest Allerseelen and Nacht und Träume, Liszt's Liebesträume No.3 (& Consolation No.3) and Brahms's Wiegenlied - all originally songs -, and Beethoven's and Debussy's Moonlight/Clair de lune; and Fauré's Berceuse (Dolly Suite) and Debussy's En bateau (Petite Suite) - both originally for piano duet - which you might like.

For original piano music, have a look at Grieg's Arietta Op.12/1.

Does it have to be by Liszt? I recommend you try Liszt's Consolation No 3. Very simple technically. And beautiful.
