226. Distant Voice 01:43

Initially there is just a sax and synth vox noise playing a haunting melody together. This then develops to more voices and a piano joining in as the sax takes on a more prominent role. Could be used to good effect in situations requiring some suspense.

An advanced tremolo technique is required to perform this complex and well known guitar piece. 'Memories of the Alhambra', transports you to a different place and has been used in productions such as the film, 'The Killing Fields', the American TV show, 'The Sopranos' and the British TV show, 'Out of Town'.

Zwei Klavierthemen stehen einander gegenüber, danach folgt ein bewegter Mittelteil. Eignet sich als Untermalung für eine Collage ebenso wie für die Akzentuierung  eines dramatischen Momentes. Nicht zu aufdringlich, aber doch thematisch markant. Im vorliegenden Arrangement für Klavier-Solo.

The piece is based on a theme from the last movement of the 2nd Violin Concerto in B minor by violinist Niccolò Paganini, a rondo in which the harmonies are supported by the ringing of a hand bell. Liszt had already used the theme for piano in his Variations Grande Fantaisie de Bravoure sur 'La Clochette' de Paganini in B minor. He then reworked the piece in the third etude of the 12 Études d'exécution transcendante in A flat minor. The final version of the Grandes Etudes de Paganin is written in G sharp minor. It is now the most popular and frequently played version. The etude is played at Allegretto and is basically a sequence of different finger exercises for the right hand. At the beginning there are huge staccato jumps of the right hand for which the piece is notorious. This is followed by exercises for the tension of the right hand , octave finger change exercises, trills, runs with almost exclusive participation of the weaker fingers, ascending sequences of fourth sex chords and finally chromatic octave runs. Since the difficulties are limited to the right hand, the piece is not as difficult for large, trained hands as it is commonly portrayed.
