Variations on Nostalgia – Boris Berman Plays Brahms and Silvestrov
In recent months, the 85-year-old Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov has received the world's attention more than ever due to the ongoing war.

Liszt - Un Sospiro and Ła Leggierezza
on: August 25, 2020, 03:09:54 AM
I recorded these at two diff times on the same piano. Sorry to say that because of all the quarantining the piano was quite out of tune for Un Sospiro
However I am able to use this time to learn pieces I never spent the time on before. So just learning them and moving on regardless of the piano !
It is in tune for La Leg



terrific etudes

Pity about the not-so-in-tune piano on the Sospiro, one of my favorites from Liszt. Nice sound on the Leggierezza. You’re displaying some great technique on both pieces.

thanks much ! i realized there is so much ground to cover esp in leggierezza. many techniques involved. that's why i love liszt, esp the delicate more chopinesque pieces like this.
