one of my all time favorite passages is in liszt's nineteenth hungarian rhapsody... i'll try to describe it. it happens twice in the friska, the main theme (c#, d, e, c#-d, e, f, d-e, f, g, e- etc) is turned into these sort of broken octave jumps with a few chords in between in the right hand...starting at measures 260 and 374 if anyone has the sheet music. i know it's not a very well known piece but i love it. it's a perfect flow in the music and it sounds so cool.

and although i can't play it, i love the climactic build up in ondine...when it all builds up and up and up then comes down in a dramatic way.

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils. - Hector Berlioz
