I probably can't narrow it down to one, but I'll start you off with one: Liszt's 'Romance' (s169). It is subtitled 'What Is the Point' in French and is written based on a very sad French poem AYouTube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JGDZK

From researching it seems the current size was built for your average European large male handed pianist (Liszt and Brahms) , so they are unlikely to want a larger size unless you have very large hands! Then your left with the rest of the popula

Human beings have been evolving in a larger direction for some time, so it doesn't make sense to me that keyboard dimensions would get smaller. And gosh, what about all the poor people with fingers so large that they can't fit between the sharps whe

In Vienna, you must try schnitzel at Figlmuller. The portion is very big. You need to make reservation. The price is very reasonable. To be Vienna is like a U.S city, not interesting, but I love Salzburg!
