Franz Liszt

October 22, 1811 - July 31, 1886
born in Raiding, composed during the Romantic period
Liszt was the only contemporary whose music Richard Wagner gratefully acknowledged as an influence upon his own. His lasting fame was an alchemy of extraordinary digital ability -- the greatest in the history of keyboard playing -- an unmatched instinct for showmanship, and one of the most progressive musical imaginations of his time. Hailed by some as a visionary, reviled by others as a symbol of empty Romantic excess, Franz Liszt wrote his name across music history in a truly inimitable manner.

From his youth, Liszt demonstrated a natural facility at the keyboard that placed him among the top performing prodigies of his day. Though contemporary accounts describe his improvisational skill as dazzling, his talent as a composer emerged only in his adulthood. Still, he was at the age of eleven the youngest contributor to publisher Anton Diabelli's famous variation commissioning project, best remembered as the inspiration for Beethoven's final piano masterpiece. An oft-repeated anecdote -- first recounted by Liszt himself decades later, and possibly fanciful -- has Beethoven attending a recital given by the youngster and bestowing a kiss of benediction upon him.

Though already a veteran of the stage by his teens, Liszt recognized the necessity of further musical tuition. He studied for a time with Czerny and Salieri in Vienna, and later sought acceptance to the Paris Conservatory. When he was turned down there -- foreigners were not then admitted -- he instead studied privately with Anton Reicha. Ultimately, his Hungarian origins proved a great asset to his career, enhancing his aura of mystery and exoticism and inspiring an extensive body of works, none more famous than the Hungarian Rhapsodies (1846-1885).

Liszt soon became a prominent figure in Parisian society, his romantic entanglements providing much material for gossip. Still, not even the juiciest accounts of his amorous exploits could compete with the stories about his wizardry at the keyboard. Inspired by the superhuman technique -- and, indeed, diabolical stage presence -- of the violinist Paganini, Liszt set out to translate these qualities to the piano. As his career as a touring performer, conductor, and teacher burgeoned, he began to devote an increasing amount of time to composition. He wrote most of his hundreds of original piano works for his own use; accordingly, they are frequently characterized by technical demands that push performers -- and in Liszt's own day, the instrument itself -- to their limits. The "transcendence" of his Transcendental Etudes (1851), for example, is not a reference to the writings of Emerson and Thoreau, but an indication of the works' level of difficulty. Liszt was well into his thirties before he mastered the rudiments of orchestration -- works like the Piano Concerto No. 1 (1849) were orchestrated by talented students -- but made up for lost time in the production of two "literary" symphonies (Faust, 1854-1857, and Dante, 1855-1856) and a series of orchestral essays (including Les préludes, 1848-1854) that marks the genesis of the tone poem as a distinct genre.

After a lifetime of near-constant sensation, Liszt settled down somewhat in his later years. In his final decade he joined the Catholic Church and devoted much of his creative effort to the production of sacred works. The complexion of his music darkened; the flash that had characterized his previous efforts gave way to a peculiar introspection, manifested in strikingly original, forward-looking efforts like Nuages gris (1881). Liszt died in Bayreuth, Germany, on July 31, 1886, having outlived Wagner, his son-in-law and greatest creative beneficiary. ~ Michael Rodman, Rovi

You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you do not post this in at least 3 threads you will die in 2 days. Now that you're reading this, don't stop. This is so scary. Put this in at least 2 songs in 143 minutes, and when you're done press F6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary, it actually works.

Bill "your guests have been asking when they may view the body." Margo "tell them it hasn't been embalmed yet." "All about Eve" how can anyone not think of that scene at the piano when they listen to this?
The bio of Liszt fails to mention that his daughter married Wagner, with whom Nietzche later had a philosophica l difference with in his approach to his musical inspiration. Not a criticism of Liszt's talent, but certainly colors the praise lavished on him by Wagner
I enjoy Lang Lang's playing...ho w e v e r he's the pianist...Li s z t wrote what he wrote and it was exciting and fun enough without all the compositiona l re writes that Lang has added...afte r the novelty of the first time hearing it...it becomes annoying
Why does this come up when I click Lang Lang's biography? Ehhh...
I love this piece so much !
I sense a Johnny Depp period piece in the works...coul d be intriguing.. . : )
And your painting must be very beautiful artist814200 4 having the inspiration of Liszt's music and God.
God blessed us with the music of Franz Liszt. I discovered him when I was a small child and he has contributed to my peace of mind ever since. I play his music while painting. What a source of inspiration his music is.

Beautiful --
This symphony is one of the best after Fur Elise and Waltzes in D major. : )
A wizard!
If only I could have seen him perform and watched his hands. A dream I dream as I listen to how his soul captured feelings in such beautiful music.
Very helpful and interesting biography on Franz Liszt.

Hello!
Liszt? Chopin? Beethovan? Comparisons are impossible as they stand alone, and for their contribution s they mutually excell one another..
Lisztomania! think less but see it grow. like a riot like a riot oh! not easily offended!
One reason Liszt's bio is longer than Chopin's might be that he lived twice as long and changed his harmonic language far more often. The music Liszt wrote toward the end of his life foresaw many aspects of 20th century music: To name but two, impressionis m (''Nuages gris'') (1881) and atonality (the ''Bagatelle without Tonality'' (1885) originally written as the fourth Mephisto Waltz). I remember studying Nuages in colleges and thinking, ''That's where Debussy got his style!''

Silly people. You talk of F. Liszt as a dude. Here is a man blessed with such immense talent. beyond anyone's conception. Yet you complain about Chopin not getting recognition. What scale are you dealing with.
Each was touched by the Gods of prodigy...

How inspiring! I wonder if he realized in his time how important his music will be for future generations like us. That makes you focus even more on leaving a legacy behind...hug e shoes to fill.
Liszt is one of those composers that everyone can recognize,an d for good reason. The Dante Symphony should be required listening for all music students.
Speaking of chopin, why is it that his bio is a measly 2 pragraphs and liszt's is much lenghthier?
Liszt was a genius. However, he never could come close to the talent and musical expertise as that of his younger counterpart, Chopin.
Profound.
We need the Beethoven 7th symphony transcriptio n for piano!
Je t'aime Liszt! Je t'aime, et je t'adore aussi. :) I agree with Ericka A. Holman on her opinion of Liszt.
Lisztomania. . .

Je t'aime Liszt! Je t'aime, et je t'adore aussi. :)
NICE job Liszt...may you RIP!
Wait! No Symphonic Poems??? Liszt pretty much *invented* the form! It's a glaring omission that you need to rectify ASAP! Also, hpaulganther is right; you need to add the "Dante Symphony" -- to which I would add that it wouldn't be complete without the "Faust Symphony".

Incredible composer... but no Dante Symphony? That's actually my favorite work by Liszt. I suggest the Budapest Symphony recording, or Barenboim with the Berlin Phil.

Bach moves me as deeply as David moved King Saul with his harp. I've even used his Orgelwerks as holistic migrane medicine. Few composers move me as deeply as the Meister; Liszt is one. Even just having the music on, and not listening, my mood will lift and fall with the passages of his work.
Truly shows the world what a talented human can accomplish. Music is all about counting to me; math if you will. Liszt's music breaks the monotony of measure. He is a great music talent, and under-apprec i a t e d .
Liszt allows me to feel so much better. Allows me to feel. What an an awesome talent.
Who's better: Liszt or Chopin?

HE WAS A GREAT COMPOSER, PIANIST AND PERSON! I ADMIRE HIM!

Beethoven and Lizst are both among my favorite composers, but next to Liebestraum & his Hungarian Rhapsodies, Liszt is at his best transcribing Beethoven's symphonies for the piano. I never tire of hearing them. Thanks again Ed
Great music!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
