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.

Our classical music apps – The Orchestra, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and The Liszt Sonata – have won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Music Award for Creative Communication.

Simply the best thing on the AppStore

I have spent more time in this app than any other on my iPad. An absolutely peerless piece of work celebrating two geniuses, one from centuries past and one from the present day. I just wish touchstone would make more like this.

This is the most wonderful app. There is nothing else quite like it. But could we please have another! The Diabelli variations of The Hammarklavier Sonata would be great!

Fantastic! Sublime!

I haven't come across a Touch Press app yet that I haven't adored and this is no exception. In the Performance area you are taken through the entire thrill-ride of the sonata, following along with the score, the actual playing and the emotion of the piece - all at the same time. All the background sections are beautifully put together. It's the whole package! An app like this is all the justification I need for owning an iPad in the first place. Absolutely superb!

So what am I waiting for next from Touch Press? A performance of The Rite Of Spring conducted by Simon Rattle with an option to watch the ballet performed by the Alvin Ailey Dance Company. There you go - the gauntlet has been thrown!!!!
