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.
