Transcendental Étude No. 9 (Liszt)
Transcendental Étude No. 9 in A-flat, "Ricordanza" is the ninth of the twelve Transcendental Études by Franz Liszt. It has wild but gentle cadenzas and demands delicate finger work. There are some areas with syncopation similar to Frédéric Chopin's Étude Op. 10, No. 3. This is a good introduction to Liszt's pianistic style.
