Grosse Konzertfantasie über spanische Weisen, S. 253 (1845): 57:48Pf. Alberto Cobo

This piece is sometimes considered Liszt's most difficult work for the piano - excepting perhaps only his hour-long symphony transcriptions. And with good reason - it abounds in stunt-work that is Herculean even for a Liszt arrangement. This master-work is rarely recorded, though Mikhail Pletnev once performed segments of it in concert.
