Ballade 1:
A nice piece, not so hard!
Etudes op.10:
All hard, some VERY hard, others not that hard. But some are really beautifull! If you want to make some etudes, go see the ones op.25 too.

Sonata in b minor:
A great masterpiece...VERY hard,and long, in one movement, but a very great piece.

Hungarian rhapsody #2:
The best hungarian rhapsody in my opinion, a little hard
but very nice, and has some cadenza ad lib, so you can make it your way!

Transcendental etudes:
Some are quite nice, but they're all HARD!!!

Transcendental etudes:
Same comment as for liszt's  ;D but i don't know all of them.
