One of the most idiosyncratic and charismatic musicians of the
twentieth century, pianist Glenn Gould (1932-82) slouched at the
piano from a sawed-down wooden stool, interpreting Bach, Beethoven,
and Mozart at hastened tempos with pristine clarity. A strange
genius and true eccentric, Gould was renowned not only for his
musical gifts but also for his erratic behavior: he often hummed
aloud during concerts and appeared in unpressed tails, fingerless
gloves, and fur coats. In 1964, at the height of his controversial
career, he abandoned the stage completely to focus instead on
recording and writing.

The third concert etude in D-flat major from Liszt's Trois etudes de concert will challenge advanced pianists with its constant hand-crossings and varying number of cascading notes per measure in the accompaniment. A lovely pentatonic melody is embedded in the rolling arpeggio-like patterns, frequently played by alternating hands throughout the piece. Keeping this cantando melodic line distinct and phrased while transparently maintaining the flowing accompaniment is the primary challenge of this masterwork. This edition is based on Musikalische Werke herausgegeben von der Franz Liszt-Stifung, Series II, edited by Ferruccio Busoni.
The only information we have on Albert Pieczonka (ca. 1828-1912) is sketchy and not completely reliable. For example, his first name may have been "Alfred." It is reported that he was a Polish composer who lived in Germany. His 6/8 "presto" tarantella in A minor will challenge the late intermediate level pianist in speed as well as agility to execute the scale work and broken chords cleanly, however most of the melodic material lays easily under the right hand. There are accents, nice dynamic contrasts, and a wide use of the keyboard.
