Stephen Hough performs one of the most complex pieces of piano music ever written, and helps you uncover its subtle elegance with a multi-perspective performance and the innovative NoteFall visualisation.

“It‘s like a personal guided tour of a great castle, keys to every room, access to every secret.” – Stephen Hough

Features of The Liszt Sonata include:

• Witness a masterpiece: Hough’s virtuoso performance has been exquisitely captured on multiple cameras, allowing the music to be experienced from any perspective.

• The NoteFall: A hypnotic graphical visualisation of the music highlights the intricacy and complexity of the piece and the subtleties of its interpretation.

• Uncover the backstory: Delve into the soap opera that was Liszt’s life, explore the history and structure of the piece, and learn about the interplay of motives and themes that make the Piano Sonata such an important work.

The Liszt Sonata in B Minor


Stephen Hough's performance was superb. It was such an enriching experience to learn the background of the piece. I enjoyed the little embedded excerpts in the explanation portion of the app. Loved being able to follow the performance as the notes scrolled below. I just wished I could have somehow transferred the performance portion to my other devices so I could listen to the piece independent of the video. If that became available it could justify the price of the app. As it is if I want the music on my iPod I need to make another music only purchase and that is only if that recording is available for purchase. But I would love other pieces presented in like manner. I am planning to investigate The Orchestra also made by Touch Press. I know I won't be disappointed. Excellent app.



Beautiful. This is worth the money for any lover of classical music. With you directing the cameras you get to see everything from the orchestra down to the sheet music, not to mention the beautiful birds eye, the close up on the performers beautiful interpretation, but the descending colored streaks that descend for each note, think guitar hero. I must admit I enjoyed even more reading about the piece, intercut with clips of the performer speaking of his admiration of Liszt and putting the piece in perspective historically and emotionally. Perhaps the finest sonata there is, presented by touch press who never cease to get me to gladly fork over $10+ to experience one of their wonderful apps.

Great App!


This is a great app I had dream for a long time! The staff note sync perfect to the video, and so as the piano roll. I think inside the app there's both video and midi tracks. Actually I have an automatic player piano which the keys can be driven by Midi signals, I just wander if this app can send midi out via a camera kit and a USB Midi-interface. Great job, well done!
