  • March 07, 2009 This is what the piano was made for.

    Being a teenager, I am far from perfect in my ability to play this piece perfectly. When I first started this piece, I practiced piano only because my parents wanted me to. This piece has taught me discipline and has advanced me far more than I ever thought possible. You...

    will not find a better piece. I honestly believe Liszt and his 2nd Hungarian Rhapsody is the reason we have piano music and love it so much. This piece is not for the light at heart. This piece takes time, patience, and understanding.

    Such a beautiful piece of music. It's so simple and yet it couldn't be more complex.

  • June 19, 2008 Finding the right version

    A few years ago, I was given a version of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 and I enjoyed learning it, but when I would listen to recordings, I noticed that the version I had was only a modified version of the original. So, I ordered this piece again from...

    Sheet Music Plus and I could not have been more pleased. There are actually markings on the score that were made by Liszt himself such as what fingering to take for tricky passages. There is also a recording of this piece performed by Maksim Mrvica which I highly recommend someone listening to. I have held the score in hand while listening to it and I can say that it is identical. I could not be more pleased!!!

  • June 16, 2008 Fabulous!

    Not the easiest piece of music, but well worth the effort to learn it - this was a nostalgic purchase recalling the famous Tom & Jerry cartoon ("Cat Concerto") in which Tom is the concert pianist with Jerry asleep inside the piano....very funny! It's a great piece, so persevere and...

    you'll have fun!

  • June 10, 2008 A must for every serious pianist

    As only a thirteen year old, this piece was a tad ambitious for me to take up, but, with the Lasan (first part) almost complete, it is one of the most stunning pieces I have ever heard. This piece is not for the faint hearted, or beginner, and be careful...

    as you consider taking it up, because it is one of the MOST difficult pieces in existance, but it is worth the blood and tears, when you get it, as it is, like I have said beautiful. A good excersize to try before playing this is the Flight of the Bumble Bee, because it helps get your fingers in shape to play the incredibly difficult and immence scales in the Lassan, and most of the Friska. This is a great version. I also suggest getting a recording, as there are good ideas for articulation not mentioned in the music. Marc Andre Hamelin has a nice version on Youtube, but with a different cadenza that what is in the music.
