    This immense work is actually an abridged version of what is supposed to be a 12 volume set of technical exercises devised by the greatest piano virtuoso, Franz Liszt. The editor Julio Esteban distilled the essentials from each volume (the rest of the volume is supposedly the same exercise in...

    all other keys). This is best for students who have mastered all scales and arpeggios as each exercise is meant to be transposed in every key. Students who have completed and mastered Hanon may move on to these exercises. Extreme care must be taken so as not to injure the hands.

  • May 29, 2008 Superb exercises

    I must recommend everybody who wants to perfect his playing to play these exercises. Until now I have liked and used Hanon, but not anymore. Liszt is much more giving and less complicated to play.Your fingers and hands will gain strength and your playing will never be the same...

    again.

  • September 04, 2006 Extremely difficult - beyond

    These exercises have extraordinary merits, but they really are for pianists who already have formidable fingers and years of muscular development. To use it too early or without caution might result in nasty injury. Even the very first exercises can be truly dangerous. Suggestion: work through one or two conventional...

    technique books before going into this one. But if you're a Liszt fan and are curious about this book, you can certainly pick it up and play with some of the exercises here, provided you do it very little at a time and work very gently, slowly, and carefully.
