1. I would be ashamed of my piano.  :D

2. My favourite composer was not a piano virtuoso. ;)

Omg. Liszt. What could be better?!

I'd have him play...

1. Transcendental Etudes 9-12.
2. Un Sospiro.
3. Vallee d'Obermann.
4. Petrarch Sonnet 104.
5. Dante Sonata.
6. Pensee Des Morts.
7. Weinen Klagen Variations.
8. Norma Fantasy.
9. Ad Nos Fantasy and Fugue.
10. And lastly...the B Minor Sonata.

THAT would be  a night to remember. (I typed that list in around 15 seconds, if I really thought about it, it may be a tad different. But, it does look very good!).

Wolfi, I'd have done the same choice: Arrau interpretation of the 111 is almost unbearably beautiful, and moving...
