193 Pieces by Liszt Added to Piano Street's Sheet Music Library
The latest addition to our already vast piano sheet music library almost doubles the number of pieces by Franz Liszt. Last week, we added 193 pieces by this multifaceted composer, taking a significant step towards our goal of publishing a complete library of the classical piano repertoire. Our Liszt section is now nearly complete, but more will follow - with this extremely productive and hard-working composer-pianist it's hard to know where to stop! Read more >>

well all this is really barely recognizable :'( one important point I think is that you get a halfway decent instrument...I love the cuckoo clock though ;D

"con mortuis in lingua mortua" means "With the dead in a dead language" Easy to look up on the net. This needs time and resonance.  I get the impression that you care as much about the titles as you care about what and how you play, actually... Even if you would play wonderfully on a totally out of tune crap piano at least there would be music and feeling and a message and everybody who has an idea about this music would understand it...

Yes, you're correct about getting a decent instrument, my recordings sounds like you-know-what.
