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 >>

Liebestraum and Nocturne
on: July 12, 2016, 03:04:58 PM
I am going to take the AT examination in 2017 or 2018, but wondering if I should choose
Liszt liebestraum no3 or Chopin nocturne op 62 no2.

Which one is easier to handle or more suitable to be chosen for exam? Please give your advices

Thanks for your help!

I'd pick the Chopin.
It's easier technically (though still not easy) and less extravagant, but it's less played, more mature musically, and has lots of room to bring your personal choices into account.

Hi cheukyi,

It depends on how long you had the pieces and how polished they are. Liebesträume is overplayed, therefore I would choose the Chopin unless you really have the passion for Liebesträume, or mastered over the technical difficulties of that piece.
