Don’t thank me now, but I think I have developed a piano scoring system. And it’s this: If you can play Frank Liszt’s Libestraum 3 up to the first cadenza (not including the cadenza) you can call yourself a strong intermediate. If you can play the entire piece at tempo, you, sir/madam, are an advanced pianist.

You are welcome!

What is a "piano scoring system"? And, no, I won't thank you.

BruceD,

Exactly what I said. You disagree? Bravo, we’ve just had a civil exchange

What do you do about pianists who have never played it ?
I haven’t and choose not to— there is so much other music that I really want to play

Oh... I clicked on the title thinking "scoring" meant music scoring, as in writing a music score.

Since you haven't had the courtesy to answer my initial question, I hardly consider that we have had a "civil" exchange. There has, as yet, been no exchange, in the sense of conveying information requested.

Yet another poster has not understood "piano scoring system."

It must be 2020 and all that’s going on. My original post was meant as a tongue in cheek protest of how difficult Liebestraum 3 is. No disrespect to BruceD.

Without a video, I could not see where your tongue was placed.

No worries Nandoh.
It’s really difficult for me to tell when posts are meant to be tongue in cheek. I just assume they are not, and then wait to be corrected. 😊

Best wishes on the Liszt

Thank you for the welcome! (Like all vampires, I have to be welcomed in to be able to enter another's abode.)

But I do believe that said Liebesträume has two cadenzas, the first one with RH double notes, which I can easily play prestissimo, but I can't play the second one properly (because I can easily fudge it wink , so I don't practice it). Does that mean I'm a beginner getting on advanced?
