Martha Argerich plays La Leggereza, one of Franz Liszt's Three Concert Etudes for piano

Liszt – La Leggierezza – Argerich, Piano

La Leggierezza (meaning “lightness”) is the second from Franz Liszt’s Three Concert Etudes. It is a monothematic piece with a very simple melodic line for each hand under an unusual Quasi allegretto tempo marking, usually ignored in favour of something slightly more frenetic.
