http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5exxakK49c&fmt=18 Any kind of comments and criticism would be most welcome! Dear Hye-Jin, I also love this song very much! I got to know it in school (almost 15 years ago, sigh...) in a great recording by Fritz Wunderlich and immediately feel in love with it. I actually recorded it yesterday; I hope you'll enjoy it! The Thalberg transcription is not difficult like the operatic fantasies of Thalberg or Liszt, but I find it quite difficult to bring off well, because the melody is buried like a sandwich within thick chords. Also, the piece is quite long and if played by piano alone the risk of making it sound monotonous is bigger than for a singer who still has the text. Btw, there are also three transcriptions of this song by Liszt - but I don't know them well enough to comment. P.S. I don't submit an audio file yet. I plan to do a re-recording of several piece in autumn and would like to wait until then with submitting.
