Franz Liszt: Etudes for Transcendental Technique

This is an early version of the much better known Paganini Etudes from 1851. As in the case with the Transcendental Etudes, these earlier versions are the most outrageously difficult.
In the later studies, Liszt thinned the textures and removed all stretches greater than a tenth.

Does anybody know if there are any recordings of Liszt Etudes for Transcendental Technique  (the ones published in 1838, before the revisions in 1851)?

I would like to pick a couple of those and would appreciate any comments on these pieces by members that played them. Thanks.

I have a question about Liszt's Etudes. Now I know some of them are completely off the wall... but to any of you that have played/taught them, how helpful are they? I was thinking of trying his first Trascandental Etude (in C). It's only two pages... the last page being arpeggios. I just wanted to gather an opinion. Thanks.

Which one of them made the most difficult etudes?  Earlier when i hadn't heard so much by Choipn I assumed it was Liszt. Now I'm not so sure...     Tongue       
Take care /lisztener
