xx La Campanella - Liszt
June 27, 2004, 05:16:27 PM by pianochic

Hoi Everyone!

  I am 15 year old pianist from Guam (US territory, where we're always hit by typhoons). And I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on this particular piece. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone gave me some advice in particular interest to the imagining part.  Grin

I won't be able to post for a while because a typhoon is going to hit us, and we won't be having power for a month or so. Cry

xx La Campanella right after Fantasie Impromptu. Not a good choice?
May 03, 2005, 04:34:31 AM by Moonsong


My son has just finished Fantasie Impromptu, and I think he did a great job in his recital last weekend. Now he wants to play La Campanella. Would it be too challenging?

Thank you for your time!

xx Hardest part in la campanella??
July 06, 2006, 09:09:43 AM by matt haley

  Just wanted to ask what you found the hardest part in la campanella....

    suprisingly i find the last  two pages the easiest..

       I love this piece to bits and im finding it relativily fine...... many repeats

   But im really struggling  with the trills...... i find it impossible for me doing it 45 but im coping using 34..... can i get away with this as its slightly awkward but works for me???

   apart from this i dont think its as hard as its made out to be.....

         comments please

   thank you All

xx Help needed on La Campanella....
June 07, 2007, 06:46:49 PM by mwf


Not sure if anyone can help me out, but I would greatly appreciate it.

In Liszt's La Campanella, around half way through the piece just before the cadenza type passages, there are trills for the 3,4 (or 3,5 etc..) fingers in the right hand whilest playing melody notes above. The notes immediately before you play the 1,2 finger trills with 5 and 4 for the higher melody, there is a 'tr' indication and a grace note put in right before the left hand quaver intervals in the left hand (which require a jump in the left hand to reach from the bottom note to the top). I cant understand why there is a grace note, and surely you are not supposed to play it whilest you are trilling in the right hand, because its fast alternating anyway, however it does not work out IMO if you trill that part with the g sharp and A natural, what I mean is the emphasis is on the A natural when trilling and the left hand does not fit in right, it feels wrong and it should be the g sharp that the left hand quavers start on surely, not the grace note A natural it says on the score-I know for anyone who is not familiar with the piece this is impossible to know what I am on about. It also happens just after the 1,2 trill part again.

Basically does the grace note before the 'tr' indication mean you play an actual grace note or does it mean you start the trill on the A natural and its just telling you with a grace note? There is no more grace notes used in the piece, why use them at these above mentioned points and no where else, most of the time the complete trill is written out in demi-semi-quavers to tell exactly what to play.


xx La Campanella or HR Nr. 2
January 12, 2008, 09:01:54 PM by shadow88

I'm a big Liszt Fan and as next piece I want to play La Campanella or the Hungarian Rhapsody Nr. 2 (Not the Horowitz Arangement).
Which piece is harder to play? Or are both same difficulty?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

Robert York, pianist

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
