Just listened to Alfred Brendel's take on it! Lovely! The second movement is very "Songs Without Words", and Brendel is clearly enjoying the 3rd movement a lot - great fun! Thanks too for the Op.10 and Op.14 tips, I will get copies of those to add to my list!

I play both those and play them regularly.  Both have been in recent Grade 8 syllabuses.  My favourite is in Eflat, not the famous one (Op9), but Op55 no 2. It is a little harder, as is the other one I play in my favourite key F#minor  Op48 No2

I am playing two pieces by Liszt from Harmonies Poétiques et Religieuses.  A harder one Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude,  and an easier one Hymne de l'Enfant a son Réveil.

The Peasant's Boots by Joaquin Turina. I bought a random collection of Turina piano pieces from Oxfam (online - dangerous activity haha) and trying out a few. Really nice atmosphere and a 'quick study'.
