My friend, it's time for these Liszt Technical Exercises to see what you're really made of.
These are not simple exercises. Oh sure, they start out simple, like they always do, but from there...let's just say you'd better have a pretty advanced technique to play these up to speed. As others have mentioned, dynamic markings make their presence felt, and you'd better know how to deal with them. But that's not really the crux of these exercises. They are made for advanced pianists with advanced technique, so unless you have it, I recommend going back to some easier exercise books (as mentioned above) and making sure you can play those at an advanced speed (108bpm tends to be the objective).
To sum up: this is the final book of piano exercises you'll ever need. Start with Schmitt and end here. In the meantime you'll have enough technique to tackle ANY existing piano piece. And when you finish, know that the only thing standing between you and concert piano stardom is YOU, because certainly you have the raw ability to play any piece you want.
I studied many years with Robert Goldsand, who studied with Moritz Rosenthal, who studied with FRANZ LISZT!!! One of the staples of the tecnical repertoire[under Goldsand] were the scales in Double Thirds and Double Sixths.Alas after carefully scrutinizing the fingerings of the Double Thirds and Double Sixths, I found a few differences of opinion with Herr Goldsand.... but there is enough information there that you will still get usable information for developing your tecnic!!! Enjoy, and "Courage" as Goldsand's advice used to be!
some of the pieces i was working on caused pain in my hands and back. i talked with a friend and they said that i dont enough strength in my fingers to play my pieces well in tempo and correctly. they suggested holding down four notes and playing the remaining finger. when i got home that night i looked in my library passed Brhms and Crammer and Czerny and yes even Hanon and found Liszt! i looked at the first exersise and i played through it a few times (id changed the fingers being played but stayed in the same key). it took about an hour. one thing the first exercise told me was what fingers i needed to work on! i talked with my teacher and she told me i can go on and work from Liszt but: DO IT SLOWLY and CONSENTRATE on a VERY LOOSE WRIST and finger development.
the strong accents can be a little tricky but after youve done it for a week or so it can be quite fun! it helps with accenting beats other than beat one! after finger controll has been established then you can play the full range of dymanics. in the first few numbers, fingers four and five are going to be the biggest challenge but if done properly it will soon pay off! after playing just the first five numbers in the book, i felt light in the fingers and not tensed. and thats one thing we cant have when playing pieces!
i used to start my pracitce by doing scales and Hanon; well now i do Liszt (for finger independence and strength/loose wrist)[the slowest tempo in my warmup session], Hanon (finger speed and dexterity)[medium tempo in my warmup session], then scales (for greater speed and finger accents)[fstest tempo in my warmup session]. all this takes about 45 minutes to an hour and im set to work on what ever i need to for the next several hours!
if you want to be fluent in all kinds of area of pianism (especialy Liszt!), this book is for you BUT it can not be set on a booksehlf! if you dont have a piano do some of the exercises on a hard surfice! 400something pages is alot and some of it will seem impossable but technique will not come over night....just as the world was not created in a day!
Pre-Requiments for the user of the book would be:
1. Patiance with yourself! if something doesnt come out perfect the first time, come back to it later! you brain is working but sometimes we shove information into it instead of programming the information! our brains need time to internalize what new task we give it. the brain is far more supirrior than any computer we humans can make!
2. Time...plenty of it! it takes time to learn any new skill! pianists are by no means exemped from this law!
3. an open mind!...if your mind is not on what your doing, it is then pointless continuing the task! just stop right there! your mind needs to be working just as much (if not MORE) as your fingers are working.
best of luck!
I would recommend that anyone who is serious about learning the piano gets this book. Most exercises you might not be able to study at first, if you're not already at a very advanced stage, but at least from 1 - 5, I would recommend to anyone and everyone, at any level (with teacher guidance as to avoid doing it wrong!). These exercises in particular require you to hold four fingers down and play with one in each hand, making use of several different rythms and a dynamic that ranges from pp to ff in each finger, which is fantastic for your finger health. From this, the exercises develop and scale in difficulty, aiming to make each finger and both hands completely independent and free from each other. This will, of course, require a lot of time, patience, dedication and effort from the student, as it is a very complete method, covering just about everything you'll possibly meet on a keyboard.
About the edition, the book is big and the print is dark and clean, which makes for fantastic reading, and it also has helpful guiding lines before different exercises by Esteban which helps with getting the best results out of it. The one problem I have with it is that it doesn't sit open very well at the piano, but this can be fixed by using some pegs to hold it. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this, as it is better, and probably cheaper!, than printing over 200 pages from the IMSLP.
