Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt is a composer which, I feel, doesn't have the appreciation he deserves on this forum.Thus, I wanted to start a discussion with other people, about Franz Liszts place in musical…Continue

Toccata-esk organ piece

Started this discussion. Last reply by Fabian Frost Jun 12. 5 Replies

This is a piece I composed this spring. I would classify it as a Toccata-esk organ piece, however when I wrote it I didn't intend for it to be a Toccata. I don't really know how to categorise this…Continue

Three organ compositions

Hello,I've recently tried a new composing style and wanted your thoughts on the results.I basically sat down on the organ and thought of a quick story (like a chase for example), saw what came to my…Continue

Bob Morabito replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"Of the three compositions mentioned above-Totentanz, the B minor Sonata, and the Rondo fantastique I feel the Sonata is the most impressive musically of all. For me this musicality basically boils down to virtuosity, but only in servitude to musical…"

"Lol. The German music discourse remains ever so quaint. The 'objective' evidence of what? Sure, you can measure stretches (that's where the 'objectivity' lies, I suppose). Let's take it for grated that you are correct,…"

"I know the Sonata in B minor very well, and it is certainly a great piece by Liszt. However, measuring objective evidence Rondo fantastique is still on another difficulty level. What makes Rondo fantastique so difficult, is the endless skips…"

"Gnomenreigen is among my favorite piano compositions. I respect the man's astounding performance capabilities, though as far as his actual compositions go, I'm still yet to get familiar with Franz's works. "

Nate Fain replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"I'm not sure why you'd say that Rondo is Liszt's most difficult work. I would say the Sonata in B minor would be the hardest, musically, whereas some of the transcriptions/paraphrases/arrangements are definitely more challenging in…"

roger stancill replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"Fabian, I would find it difficult to rank Listz. Obviously a creative genius and virtuoso, but somehow, at least to me, in a class different than Bach and Beethoven and Mozart and Hayden and others etc. I think it is that element of…"

Steve Chandler replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"Liszt wrote some amazing music and a whole lot of crap. The Sonata in b minor is beautifully composed, pianistically amazing, attractive and moving music. So is Un Sospiro. The Prelude and Fugue on BACH for organ is a fine work. Having said that…"

Fabian Frost replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"Liszt composed multiple pieces that are not dissonant in any way, Totentanz is my personal favorite because I am a big fan of dissonant and thunderous music. I'd never first look at the difficulty of the piece, nobody with the right mind…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"My favorite among Liszt's transcendental etudes is Chasse-neige ("blizzard"). It is mostly soft and subdued, but only an incredibly talented pianist can pull off the right effect, because it is also exceedingly difficult to play.…"

Dave Dexter replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Franz Liszt
"I don't really listen to piano music, though I must know some Liszt without knowing it, but Totentanz seems about the worst introduction to him I could personally have! I'm completely unmoved by it. The difficulty of a piece isn't the…"

Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt is a composer which, I feel, doesn't have the appreciation he deserves on this forum.Thus, I wanted to start a discussion with other people, about Franz Liszts place in musical composition. He certainly was a genius, no denying that, he wrote in a very extraordinary way and even though he composed pieces that were impossible to play, basically just to prove he can play them, they sound utterly beautiful.My absolute favorite composition by Liszt is definetly Liszt's Totentanz (…See More

Fabian Frost replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Toccata-esk organ piece
"You're actually right, this piece was pretty much improvised and learnt by heart I only made minor changes. I totally don't fall in love with my own musical whims ^^ I for example have a giant tendency to try to use redundant notes and…"

Steve Chandler replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Toccata-esk organ piece
"Hi Fabian, The derivation from Bach's d minor toccata was pretty obvious. However, Bach may have been 18 when he wrote his piece but there's a lot more to it than is in yours. Your piece sounds like it was improvised on a slow day. I agree…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Toccata-esk organ piece
"Ah, I didn't know about what a toccata was. My theoretical knowledge is terrible. Well, as I said, I admire what you wrote and played. :) Looking forwad to the piano piece. :)"

"Hey, Thank you very much for the feedback I really appreciate it. Yes I did play it myself, that's why you can hear some mistakes when you listen carefully. As for the rest of your comment I couldn't agree more. I did not have a…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Fabian Frost's discussion Toccata-esk organ piece
"Hi Fabian, I've been listening to it and I admire what you wrote (and played?) but in my opinion it's it bit too much of the same. For the rest - but that can be my opinion of course - I miss anything of a melody. Just my 2 cents."

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I'm an amateur composer, that mostly composes without the use of sheets (That just means I'd rather learn the piece by heart than write everything down, it's time consuming really).

I play all my compositions myself and don't use any computer programs to make my music, I'd love to start with that sometime. I compose music for the organ and the piano and record this music semi-professionally.

My music composing style is very different each time, I never clinch to one specific composing style. My motto is: "Don't write melodies that are driven by the chords, let the chords be driven by the melody"
