The Hardest Piano Music Ever

This section of the website describes some of the most difficult piano music that exists, composer by composer. Most composers we know and love have created some monstrously difficult pieces – this part of the site honors such pieces.

Here are Chopin’s toughest piano compositions, complete with musical examples so you can listen to them (and dream about learning how to play them).

Rachmaninoff was known for being a piano virtuoso, so it’s no wonder he composed so many tough pieces. Check them out here!

Liszt, like Rachmaninoff, was also known for being a piano virtuoso and is considered one of the best pianists who ever lived. As such, there are quite a few selections on this list, largely from his Transcendental Etudes.
