GREAT PIANISTS - Part 1

F. Chopin and F. Liszt
If Frederic Francois Chopin is considered the most romantic composer and poet of the piano music world, Franz Liszt is regarded as the greatest pianist of all time. He is one of the most awe-inspiring figures in all of music history, a genius, unique, and very imaginative. Most of his piano compositions are considered unique, inspiring, and innovative. His music evoked deep psychological and emotional impact, opening new dimensions in sound, and the human psyche.

Liszt was the first and true inventor of impressionism and atonal music. He was the first to fully orchestrate on the piano, utilizing all its undiscovered resources. Most importantly, he altered the course of music history.

To understand his works is to understand the true essence of piano playing.

Frederic Chopin was a prolific composer. I love to listen to his piano music, especially etudes, ballades, impromptus, mazurkas, and polonaises. Liebestraum and Hungarian Rhapzody No. 2 are two of the best compositions of Liszt.
