Thanks Alfor for the Friedman edition of Liszt. The pedalling is extremely deliberate to my eyes - full of inventiveness and imagination of sound and resonances. And at the same time, it is not easy to master and follow unless one has thought as profoundly as Friedman. Eye-opening indeed.

I've been comparing editions of this Legend and no question, Friedman has a lot more to offer and I am amazed at the detail one can bring out just by following his pedaling--but I'm finding it a struggle....but worth the effort.

Much appreciated, Alfred.

Much appreciated, Alfred.
BTW in Friedman's editions the usual asterix means a complete lifting/change of the right pedal
and the V-shaped interruptions of a line a half* change of the right pedal.

*not to be understood as exactly as it is explained in Karl-Ulrich Schnabel's
„Modern Technique of the Pedal“.

Thank you Alfred for the 2nd Ballad. I did wonder about the two types of pedal markings.......had guessed the V-shape might mean something different, but ah, yes! Half-pedal it is.

So you would ask me to choose the best out of Liszt's over 1000 compositions? Ha! I have some which IMHO (that means "In my humble opinion"--and everyone else's mileage can and will vary!) I would much rather play myself and hear in concert than the sonata: Au Bord d'une Source (probably my favorite Liszt piece), Un Sospiro, La Campanella, Harmonies de Soir, Paysage, several of the other various etudes and some of the rhapsodies. Of course there is endless debate on this and no need to rehash it here.

Anyway I do like this edition and ran to the piano to find out the effect of the half-pedal on the indicated passages. Clearly Friedman has put a great deal of though into his pedaling. I'm finding it hard, but necessary, to break old habits.

Does anyone have Liszt's S. 491 - free transcription of Gounod's Hymne a Saint Cecile? I'm sorry if I'm just missing it on IMSLP! Help always appreciated! :)
