I just got back in town and my former piano teacher asked me to play a piece at a recital he/she is holding. It's tomorrow and I'm deciding between two famous liszt pieces: La campanella and Hungarian rhapsody no. 2. It really doesn't matter which one i pick however, but what would you pick in this situation and why? Audience are mainly supportive parents who also have their kids in the recital ranging from 7 to age 17.

I would pick the Rhapsody, because it's longer. Man, why should you even ask? Always play the longer piece!

I'd play La Campanella. HR2 is too long for a student recital, and they'll be bored by the parts that aren't zipping along. (IMO) (But HR2 is a great piece -- if you do play it, I'd just do the friska half)

Did he/she have a sex change operation?

LOL, OR can you just not tell?

On the other hand, the music, what ever on is most exciting! the one that will keep everyone listening on the edge of their seat the most, or make them cry! the most heart wrinching!

la campanella is better for younger audiences... i like it more than the HR :p
though this second rhapsody is awesome, but a bit dense in the beggining, but all the happiness that overcomes that sadness is worth the time waited smile

Not really sure which teacher is doing it, the male or the female one is holding it because last year it was held by a male and a female teacher but this year it's just held by one person, which i have yet to know.

Pretty funny though

Well, the recital was held at a Steinway Piano gallery. "He" held the recital and i played la campanella. Being ill-prepared i messed up on one or two parts but no one seem to noticed. I realized how much i need to brush up on this piece. I was notified Wednesday and expected to perform Friday evening. I'm sure i could of smoothed out those rough edges with maybe an additional day. But it's over

Thanks for all the replies

Do HR2! its the most effective piece in the common solo repertoire (for me, with the exception of Balakirev's Islamey). It's length is worth it.


i thought i heard my washing machine playing Ondine

Play what you play well and feel comfortable with. Most Parents are not Listz specialist. However, the Rhasody's melody is well know with most. I wish you much luck.
