Very beautiful arrangements by Franz Liszt, both a simpler and more difficult arrangement given to this lovely melody from Schubert
Franz Schubert: Serenade "Standchen" for piano solby anonymouson January 19th, 2013
This piece is complicated to play because of the number and position of the notes each hand must play simultaneously.
No fingering guide is provided.
List Schubert Seranadeby Jerry Dunne(MEMBER)on October 24th, 2012
I happened to hear a snippet of this beautiful compostion on u tube recently. In hadn't heard it since I was a teenager many years ago and I recall learning a simplified version of it then.
This Franz List transcription is very uplifting and I can't wait to perfect it. I might add I'm a retired music teacher.
There is some beautiful sonority throughout the piece which is more difficult than at first sight. The melody where it commences in the bass and marked 'il canto' is haunting and the 'echo' of the theme further enhances that melody.
It is a masterpiece - what else could one expect from the combined genius of List and Schubert!
I look forward to many hours of enjoyment of this transcripted piece of music and recommend it to anyone who loves the piano.
The edition by Virtualsheetmusic is very clear and well spread out.

I don't read music but I can hear it in my mind's ear - and it sure looks impressive on the sheets.

I am very content with this opportunity to buy sheet music.
For me this Liszt arrangement for piano from this Schubert song was difficult to obtain!
