Pardon the delay, I was at my parent's house in which they will retire too (~4 years). During my stay I managed to do lots of chores. No TV, no Phone (cell phones don't work up there), no Computer...silence...perfect.


Yes, I did sell my edirol to Mr. John Robson.

My computer does not want to play the link which you sent me.

Hopefully someone will record it...I have found that it is easier for me to play a piece after I heard it multiple times. I struggle if you give me a random composition to play through and not allow me to hear a professional (or near professional) recording.

Maybe I should've payed more attention during the first two years of piano lessons :roll:

Thanks for all the help.

J - not sure if you are still interested, but at my lesson today, my teacher showed me a book of Liszt pieces and wouldn't you know that one of them was this Wiegenlied ! And in this edition the time signature is cut time with a metronome setting of half-note = 46. Hope this helps. :)

The edition that your teacher showed you was in cut-time with a metronome @ 46? Your demonstrative "this" is confusing for me :wink:

Sorry, I'm probably not explaining things very well. Try listening to another link.

http://www.amazon.com/Liszt-Late-Pieces ... 377&sr=8-1


It should take you to an album on Amazon.com. Scroll down a little until you see the list of the pieces on the album and then click on "listen" with Windows Media Player to hear the first 30 seconds.

Some of those pieces are quite nice (ex: Klavierstuck in F# S.192-4). Too bad the CD costs way too much.

Now i have a sense how the piece is supposed to be played. Hopefully I can do the same :wink:
