    I'm currently a 14 year old freshman student who has been playing the piano for 11 years (starting to get college performance credits next year). I am also a teacher. I was interested in this work after watching Tiffany Poon's performance of this piece and saw this Henle...

    Urtext edition. This edition provides history of the piece, ossia variants, and of course, the appendix at the end. This edition also is printed quite nicely. The only problem with it is that it has a lot of pages and is hard to stay open, but that could easily be fixed by opening it a lot. If you were interested in learning this piece, I'd recommend this edition. Be warned though, it has a bunch of octave skips and big reaches that take a lot of practice to master. Definitely not for a beginner. If you wanted to learn this piece, again, get this one! It has the usual high quality of a Henle edition.

    This is easily one of Franz Liszt most popular pieces for solo piano. In fact every serious pianist should include this piece in their repertory. It's extremely fun to play, exciting for the listener and it's a technical monster! This piece incorporates nearly every piano technique imaginable. Fast...

    leaps/jumps, note repetition, arpeggios that span the width of the keyboard, glissandos and fast paced octaves. But despite the difficulties Liszt presents the pianist, it is well worth the energy spent to learn this piece. This is not a piece for a beginner. The Henle Edition as usual is excellent. Excellent print quality, large readable notes, a good forward explaining the origins and history of the piece and a very well put together appendix. I highly recommend this edition.
