Composer: Franz Liszt
Performer: László Leber
About the piece:
"La campanella" (Italian for "The little bell") is the nickname given to the third of Franz Liszt's six Grandes études de Paganini ("Grand Paganini Études"), S. 141 (1851). It is in the key of G-sharp minor. This piece is a revision of an earlier version from 1838, the Études d'exécution transcendente d'après Paganini, S. 140. Its melody comes from the final movement of Niccolò Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 2 in B minor, where the tune was reinforced by a little handbell.

I have been playing piano for 2 years now. This is one of my favorite piece and I must learn the entire piece one time, but at the moment I just learned the first little part of it. It's very very hard piece :)
