What are your favourite pieces of this kind?

And which composers/pianists do u think wrote the best ones?

Imo - i think horowitz and volodos are complete geniuses at this.

Btw, paraphrase is a piece based upon themes by other composers - ie. Liszt's Robert-le-Diable Fantasy, and Horowitz's Carmen.

Don Juan is an amazing transcription and a great piano piece, I like it a lot. Smile Other than that, I haven't really heard tons of them.

I have many reservations about Liszt's paraphrases & transcriptions, but I shall admit, my favorite is his Reminiscences de Norma, but that is primarily because of my love for the music of Bellini.

Don Juan by Liszt. I like Chopin's variations on "La Ci Darem la Mano" as well, does that count as a paraphrase? Horowitz's Carmen and also his Stars and Stripes paraphrases are wonderful as well.

Lol Philip, you missed the Liszt transcription of Mozart's Requiem.
I don't recommend it, by the way.

No, it doesn't; it's a set of variations for piano and orchestra Wink, which is quite a different thing.
