How to play Liszt easier and... more correctly?

Advanced Piano Coaching Online

● OTHER COMPOSERS ●


I have already published over a hundred videos on YouTube (not counting private ones). In many of them, I used short fragments of compositions by various composers as technical examples. I often don’t give them descriptions and they don’t appear in titles either, so it’s impossible to find them on the net. Therefore, I am publishing a list of them on this page, because some of you may find them useful.
By the way, I add some links to my lesser known recordings here.
