Here's a good one, if you wanna show off. She plays it too fast, (I couldn't play it this fast). FF to about 4:00, the beginning is boring.

A a couple of the simpler pieces ...



Heart

Pretty sure this is fairly well known...



My dad used to play Liszt. I'm not super sure of this but I think I remember my father saying Liszt had very large hands so his music is harder to play if you have smaller hands. Maybe you would know about this Kim.

Hell, I should google this query.

Back from google. Yup, Liszt had huge hands but Rachmaninov's were bigger. Here's a comparison.

I'm not a pianist, thank god, because my hands, splayed apart from thumb to baby finger are 8 1/4". My dad had very large hands.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Yea, I can do a comfortable 9th. I don't recall it ever being a problem playing a stretchhhhy 10th. Sometimes it's all in how you fake it. Wink

Right.
You'd be surprised how many concert pianists pick and choose what notes they're gonna play. With the orchestra playing, very few can actually hear everything they play, (or don't bother with).

I should play these more often. Simply, easy and beautiful.
