Gnomenreigen

By 

Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt's "Gnomenreigen," also known as "Dance of the Gnomes," is a brilliant and virtuosic piano composition. Composed in the 19th century, this piece showcases Liszt's extraordinary technical prowess and innovative approach to piano music. It is characterized by its rapid tempo, cascading arpeggios, and whimsical, almost otherworldly quality, capturing the elusive and mischievous nature of gnomes in folklore. "Gnomenreigen" remains a challenging and exhilarating favorite among pianists and a testament to Liszt's innovation in the Romantic era.

Gnomenreigen

by:

Asiya Korepanova

The second of Liszt's Two Concert Etudes, Gnomenreigen, is one of his most enchanting piano works. Although it poses major technical obstacles, it is considerably less daunting than most of his Transcendental and Paganini Etudes.<br><br>Asiya Korepanova, the first pianist in history to perform all 24 of Liszt's Etudes in a single recital, is uniquely qualified to understand the challenges posed by Gnomenreigen and offer constructive solutions. In her lesson, she walks through the piece section by section, offering detailed practical advice for executing Liszt's tricky figurations.<br><br>Beginning with the opening Presto Scherzando, Korepanova focuses on executing the rapid grace notes in a way that preserves the mischievous character of the opening theme and emphasizes the gigue-like dance element. In the subsequent passage marked 'Un poco animato,' Korepanova stresses the importance of minimizing motion and using arm weight to achieve brilliant fingerwork. In the developmental and closing passages, she confronts the difficulties posed by Liszt's repeated notes, rapid chords, and other daunting technical obstacles, deconstructing the physical requirements for execution and demonstrating in detail how to conceptualize and practice each.
