I know this topic has come up a number of times. I'm not so much asking what the hardest song is. I'm more trying to figure out if songs I know about measure up to that level. The ones that come to mind when I think about this question are Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2, Chopin's Ballade no. 1, and according to my piano teacher, Rhapsody in Blue was one of the hardest songs she ever learned. There is also a song by Beethoven that my piano teacher claims is regarded as one of the more difficult becuse of the demands of the phrasing, but I can't remember the name. Any thoughts?

    Did you mean Movement 3 of the Moonlight Sonata? And I don't think I've actually heard the piece, but Rachmaninoff's third piano concerto is supposedly one of the hardest works for piano ever written.

    I agree that Hungarian Rhapsody is pretty hard (and long). Try: -Moonlight Sonata (1st Movement) by Beethoven -Fantasie-Impromptu by Chopin -Valse (Op. 64, No. 1) by Chopin I find Chopin's pieces to be somewhat challenging...
