Choose a piece and Ill learn to play it.
Bring it :twisted: This should funny.
Tausig's Ballad (The Ghostship) ....goodluck you will need it! :shock: :twisted:
sorry, here are two recordings, his easier pieces may I add, it should get you familiar with Mr. Tausig:
Two Concert Etudes Op.1:
and I thought Rachmaninov was hard. :wink:
The Busoni Concerto...see you in a few years... :wink:
If I may use the Danny Devito defence... :lol: Posting with Limoncello in hand produces interesting things.
I'd say the Chopin etude in G Sharp minor with the rapid thirds. That looks pretty dangerous! That Tausig Ballade looks pretty scary too.
My guess was more impossible than scary. I was just trying to intimidate Pete with his ego :wink: and the line "bring it" made me bring out the ballade.
I dallied with that Tausig Ballade in a previous life. Never was any good with it though, and haven't touched in ages. It's damned hard, but very effective if you can toss if off with the required power and menace. It's nothing though compared with Tausig's Halka Fantasy in the same book. That one gives old Liszt a run for his money. Quite an underrated composer, Tausig.
presto furiouso throughout with 16th notes running up and down, 8th note octave jumps in the left hand whilst playing 16ths in the right. Tremolos played quickly but quietly..............a receipe for disaster or one titantic standing ovation!
Hehe! You're asking for it! If you come up with a decent version of this... :twisted:.
