This Rhaposdy shows different variations on a theme by Paganini. In some places of this piece it shows the virtisos of the soloist and orchestra. Is there anyone with the same idea as me? Also, how diffuclut and how do you learn this piece?
It's one of (in my opinion) the 3 greatest piano concertos (the other 2 being Grieg and Brahms 1, though i admit there are many i haven't heard) there's certainly plently of virtuosic passages for the soloist, without it ever descending into showy rubbish (like much liszt and chopin can sometimes) As for learning it, it's a full-blown late romantic piano concerto, and as such is one of the hardest pieces of music you're ever likely to come across (though it's easier than nos. 2 and 3) generally, if you have to ask how to learn it, then it's too hard for you to do. Don't let that put you off though, fortunately there are some easier sections, try vars. 17+18. --Matthew 17:49, 7 March 2007 (EST)
1922? Surely, that is not real. ClassicalComposers 03:45, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
