Earlier this year, there were pop-up pianos around LA county. I frequented Union Station on my way to school on the weekends, so I got some practice time in on my recital rep. I found this video of me playing the end of the Liszt Transcendental Etude No. 10 in C Minor and a woman telling me it was too loud… :c

Piano Concerto No. 1 in Eb Major - Liszt

I’m still out with the jury over whether Lang Lang facially emotes too much for a classical music setting. I’m leaning towards “you can never emote too much…”

Piano Concerto No. 1 in Eb Major: Allegro marziale animato - Liszt

…I’ve been neglecting my piano practice since I left school. But I really should be practicing this. Especially after watching this video of Ms. Argerich… she’s so beast. Gotta work on this first, ‘cause I feel that this is definitely the hardest “movement” of the entire concerto. But it’s so delightful and fun! I like the very Lisztian piano textures (percussive figurations, the distinctly Lisztian arpeggio figures, repeated notes [<3], and double octaves [<3 <3 <3 !!!!]). The ending is so me… I love double octaves way too much >.<

Piano Concerto No. 1 in Eb Major - Liszt

I’m learning this.

Apparently, someone was filming me at Union Station last weekend…

Transcendental Etude No. 8 “Wilde Jagd” - Liszt

Performed by yours truly. Not my best work with it, though…

Ave Maria (transcription for piano solo) - Schubert/Liszt

Because I played the original version today, with a flute playing the vocal part. I eventually will learn this…

5 or 6 am recording session in a lecture hall…

I love the warm feeling in my fingers after playing Liszt.
