Liszt's transcription of Schubert's Ave Maria
on: October 07, 2003, 07:06:04 AM
This is a great piece by Liszt but it seems to be quite unpopular.  I cannot find the sheet music to it ANYWHERE, although I did find one obscure midi file, that turns into really weird music that is nearly unreadable.  Anyone know of this piece?
A modern house without a flush toilet... uncanny.

I know it but it is difficult to play.  I personally think it's too thick in texture.  Dover published the complete Schubert song transcriptions Liszt made.

I love his version BECAUSE it is thick, and very elaborate.  I have a recording, though and it almost sounds like two people playing- I know that it is tough, but it sounds like two different instruments... I dont know if this is possible.  I was looking for free sheet music actually, because I dont want to buy a large book of transciptions just for one piece.
