Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread

I am currently studying an extremely difficult piece called Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt. Can anyone please give me some helpful tips about this piece?

Juman; I, too, have tried many, many, many times to play this piece. It's very difficult and requires A LOT of practice. I would reccommend the Hanon Virtuoso Technique books. They provide excellent practice in the chromatic scales. I wish you the best of luck. -Rick P.

I find that, for me (I am currently learning this piece as well), one month's work of practice and study is equal to a one hour lesson with a proffesional teacher. If you live around or near the Portland, Oregon, USA area then I would recommend a teacher (who may not be able to take any more students, but he is excellent) named Don Lehman. He is a descendant student of Beethoven (through Czerny, Leshertisky, and then Mr. Rob) and he is extremely profficient at the piano and giving very helpful technique advice.

Practice in 15 min. chunks...especially all the candenza's. I am a high school senior and I'm playing it for contest in three weeks. Its almost memorized. Wish me luck!
