Thank you for highlighting this beautiful piece, beautifully played--and also for your previous posts about Liszt. For whatever reason, I've not listened to much Liszt. This is a really lovely piece, and I look forward to exploring his music more. Thanks for the reminder, and, really, for me, the introduction to his work.

Like Acorns above, I somehow missed this one. It certainly was a stunning interpretation. The piece reminds me of the empfindsamkeit music of C.P.E. Bach, only with a larger palate.

Keep up the good.
