Mine would have to be ...

- Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

- Chant-Polonaise No. 5

- Auf Dem Wasser Zu Singen Confused

- Lovedream No. 3 (the cliché)


What are yours?

I find that quite a few of his compositions seem extremely similar in some places, sometimes as if some parts are just in different keys. But that could just be me.

Oh yeah. I was noting that my two faves were quite similar to each other in their remarkable style of build-up towards the climax, similar colour textures etc. Remarkable.

A lot of the stuff posted already, but...let's see what I can come up with on the top of my head:
A majority of the transcendental etudes, particularly no.'s 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, and 12
Gnomenreigen/Waldesrauschen
Paganini etudes except for no. 2, which I don't understand at all
Benediction of God in Solitutde
Funerailles
The Two Legends
Dante Sonata
Les Jeux d'eau a la Villa d'Este
Valse Oubilee no. 1 and Valse Impromptu (they often seem to go together--the famous ones)
1st Polonaise in C minor
2nd Ballade
HR's no. 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 15, and definitely 19 (I prefer Cziffra's transcription for no. 19)
Concerto no. 2 in A major
Hungarian Fantasy for Strings and Piano
Totentanz
Grand Galop Chromatique
La Clochette Fantasy (admittedly one of the less musical pieces out there....*ahem*)
Fantasy and Fugue on the name BACH
Beethoven Symphony Transcriptions
Reminisces de Norma
Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre
Infernal Waltz (Robert le Diable)
Schubert March Transcriptions and Erlkonig
And probably a few others..

Call me shallow if you will, but I'm a huge Liszt fan----that is, as long as the performer is up to it.

I don't know what it is about Liszt but I never think to learn any of his pieces. Yet, I do enjoy listening to them. I love the Gondola pieces....very dark and creepy almost. And Totentanz....hehe this piece is awesome.

I just love Totentanz...and all of his Hungarian Rhapsodies, even if they are a bit similar. La Campanella and Nuages Gris also stick out.
