This Etude is comes from a set of Etudes that Liszt originally composed in his youth, but later revised to become 12 of the most technically challenging works for the piano. This is the eighth in the set. The etudes were composed in 1851 and published the following year. They were composed during the period of Liszt's life where he focused his efforts on fine-tuning his piano technique and earned his well-deserved reputation as the greatest pianist of his day and possibly the greatest pianist of all time.
This etude is a fast-paced work that challenges the hands in many ways. I have enjoyed this work ever since it was first introduced to me in college and I am happy that I finally have taken the time to record it. I hope that you enjoy my recording of Liszt's transcendental etude No 8 - Arthur's Chase!
This recording took place at my home and was performed on my studio upright.
