Great Compositions/Performances: Liszt Ballade 2 Bonn Beethoven-Haus Lisitsa on 97 keys


Finally a chance to use all 97 keys, live , on video 🙂
In the original score , the decending broken octaves passage ( so-called martellato, around 8:00“) is reduced in left hand to a single line at the bottom , when Liszt-times piano run out of keys to decsend. The effect of using the missing lower octave – particulalry in live setting – is simply stupendous. There is nothing that can match sound of roaring Imperial extra-low notes! It has to be heard live – or at least in analogue recording ( that I am going to make very soon , a “Liszt project ” ) . This is the piano I am going to use 🙂 Bosy rules !!!!
