Bartok's Mikrokosmos collection might begin with pieces that any beginner can play but it also contains showpieces for the most advanced of pianists. Bach, too, had talented students in mind when he wrote his masterly three-part inventions. Liszt's Etudes are literally transcendent in the demands they place on the pianist. They're called 'studies' but they're really an outrageous dare from Liszt to virtuosos everywhere, and it's no mean feat to offer the whole dozen in a single evening as Kirill Gerstein does on this return visit to Sydney.
