Liszt Grand Etude 8 Opening (S.137)

Is the opening of this piece even possible on a modern piano? It seems so ridiculously convoluted.

Just a guess here but Liszt would probably marvel at a quality modern piano of this day compared to what he Had to play on..
Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

Leslie Howard says it's impossible on a modern piano but Idil Biret managed it just fine.
