Liszt – La Leggierezza – Yuja Wang, Piano

La Leggierezza (meaning “lightness”) is the second from Franz Liszt‘s Three Concert Etudes . It is a monothematic piece in F minor with a very simple melodic line for each hand under an unusual Quasi allegretto tempo marking, usually ignored in favor of something slightly more frenetic. It starts with a fast but delicate sixteen chromatic-note arpeggio divided in thirds and sixths under an irregular rhythmic subdivision and cadenza so as to underline the atmosphere implied in its title. – Yuja Wang
