Can someone post a recording of this etude, no. 7 from the transcendental set? 

Thanks!

Watch Berezovkies performance on YouTube, I fear taking the time to find the link may suffer the same fate as Thorns Attachment, plus it's not hard to find either ;)

Great video as well! (Atleast I think it's on YouTube, I know most of the others are, including Wild Jagd, OMG!). It's tacky, but at the least you can use Goldwave or something to record the music whilst it plays.

Or Emule, naturally ::) Which has no spyware as far as I can tell, dunno why people say they get stuff from it O_o Must be a selective program regarding victims.

Everything will pass, and the world will perish but the Waldstein Sonata will remain.

I am currently learning this etude.

One of my top favourite is from a young Japanese guy:

Did you have to bump a 3 year old thread for that?

Either people get upset for new threads being added, then people get upset for reviving old threads.

Make up your mind people!

That is a good video of it  ;D

Oh well, whatever, as long as I do not violate any forum rule.

I ended up here because I am now learning this piece from memory, wish to get some technical advice on specific passages, googled "Liszt Eroica" and happened to land on this forum - one that I haven't been frequently visiting for ages.

So I decided to share a video link. Unless somebody could prove that I am doing disservice to this thread by reviving it, I see no point refraining from doing so.

While I won't expect a "thank you" from everybody here, at least I don't expect anything remotely that sounds like a frownie  :-*

Hey, at least you revived a thread for something that isn't discussed every day; I haven't seen stuff for this etude in a long time, maybe just some small mention.

Haha, I'm sure if you made a new thread, someone would've complained either way  8)

Makes me want to learn that one... I'm starting some etudes with my prof soon (he said at least one Chopin, and mentioned Liszt possibly); might consider this one among others.

I've never understood pianostreet.com's policy, either, of leaving multi-year old threads and then someone complaining because someone new to the site either answers an old thread or starts a new one of an old topic.  Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

I've known this piece for decades, first heard it played by Lazar Berman about 30 years ago (I am 47). I tried to sight read the score but decided to forget it.

Ever since I've heard a myriad of other recordings - notably Jorge Bolet, Claudio Arrau, Leslie Howard, Vladimir Ovchinnikov, Gyorgy Cziffra, Boris Berezkovsky . . . still wondering why Alfred Brendel never recorded the set.

It was not until a month ago on 7 October this year when I discovered the YouTube video I shared that my interest in this piece was completely revived.

So even something 30 years ago could be revived. Why not something a mere 3 years ago?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't!

Judging by the ever decreasing amount of monthly posts as illustrated on the stats page, I feel that perhaps a little more encouragement and understanding is required.

People will end up not posting at all.

That's interesting.  How much have the posts decreased?  It has seemed a bit slower lately, but do you think that is only because pianitisimo is not posting, and that other guy who was always trying to start stupid arguments is not around anymore?

That's a very fine performance.  Particularly at 3:30 (those treacherous double octave volleys), he's got fantastic control and can separate what's important from what's not important.  Great job.

It has gone from 3625 in April to 1677 in October. A bit too much to blame on pianistimo ;D

The old members have discussed everything before and the new ones are too scared to post :'(

That's too bad.  Yes I suppose a lot of topics are talked to death.  The things I like to reply to rarely come up anymore.  I especially like theory related posts, but it seems these days people just post questions like, "How do I analyze the Liszt sonata?" or "What's a good chord progression?"  Basically trying to get someone else to do the work for them!  Outrageous.

At least the Audition Room keeps active!

The passage with LH octave leaps and RH widely arpeggiated chords (also in octave leaps!) in 3:10-3:14 is even more treacherous. So is the bridge passage immediately preceding it.

It's a fascinating piece.  Can't wait to see what my teacher says when I ask if I can look at it  ;)

I've attempted the double octaves; it's the chords at the start of each figuration that destroy my hands.  I just can't get those out in the fury of those octaves lol
