Sanzui (2011) - Ka - Masashi Hamauzu

This piece is extremely difficult to play. The mid section's left hand is especially hard because it has a melody of its own. And if your left hand can't play fast notes, you're stuck. Together with that, your right hand is jumping from left to right, above and under your left arm.

Then there are the fast right hand passages in the beginning of the piece. Not to mention the huge jumps in both hands... Not a piece for beginners.

This performance right here is sight reading, I just transcribed it. The piece reminds me of Debussy and even a bit of Rebecca Clarke.
