Alkan Capriccio alla Soltadesca: http://www.box.net/shared/kg3uxx2nccahu3h0uz9t

I literally had to spend 15 minutes just poring over the score in magnified mode before I could try it. Hopefully the results were worth it.

How about Fiorentino's transcription of the Waltz from Der Rosenkavalier (#891 on this page):

http://www.classicscore.hut2.ru/F.htm

or his transcription of Vocalise(#890 on the same page)?

Do you print out the music or read it off a monitor?

Renewing my challenge. I have vacation time and I hate vacation time, because I want to be productive. I'll do pianoloverus' last request tomorrow and anything else I've gotten by that time.

I read it off my laptop.

Medtner Skazka Op. 26 No. 1, 3, Op. 51 No. 3
http://imslp.org/wiki/4_Tales,_Op.26_%28Medtner,_Nikolay%29
http://imslp.org/wiki/6_Tales,_Op.51_%28Medtner,_Nikolay%29

Kapustin Suite in the Old Style Op 29 No. 1 - Allemande
http://www.scorage.ru/view.aspx?id=076506898646F9550246394ED669D96A
(from classicscore.hut2.ru)

Kapustin Prelude Op. 53 No. 9/11 (i can recommend the whole set, but maybe most of it is too rhythmically and jazz-wise challenging for sightreading)
http://www.scorage.ru/view.aspx?id=3EDC1654CDDFD7ADB722A9D401E610B8

Alkan Esquisses Op. 63 No. 4 Les Cloches, 14 Duettino, 36 Toccatina, 46 Premier Billet Doux, 48 En Songe (again, recommending the whole set)
http://imslp.org/wiki/Esquisses,_Op.63_%28Alkan,_Charles-Valentin%29


Awesome job so far! But i do think others have to practice regularly to get better at sightreading, like me. You're either the exception or your 'practice' was done long ago.

I'll be sure to tackle some of these as I'm recuperating from my root canal.. music is my therapy.
