from CD Album Liszt: Études d'exécution transcendante, S. 139.

Recorded in April 2015 at Vellon Studio, Italy, on a Grotrian-Steinweg ca. 1930.

Pianist virtuoso Simone Jennarelli plays the complete 12 Études d'exécution transcendante S139, the famous impressive technical and musical masterwork by Liszt. Recorded in April 2015.

5. Étude No. 5 (Feux follets) (B-Flat Major)

If we listen to Mazeppa and Feux follets at the same time, we can understand the supreme greatness of Liszt, virtuoso composer: actually we can contemplate the whole technic of the piano concentrated in about ten minutes!
If Mazeppa is the technic of powerful sound, Feux follets is a challenge of soft touch and of beautiful effects.
Its mechanism represents the real difficult element of Feux follets: a sort of double trill, that defies the capabilities of the human resistance and precision.
The Grande Étude No. 5 is simply a more difficult version of Feux follets (and Feux follets, the 'easier version', is often called the nightmare of piano players).
The first version of Feux follets (Étude No. 5 S136) is really a more simple version of this Étude and presents also a graceful beginning and a beautiful finale.
