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

Liszt was an incredibly precocious prodigy in astonishing ways -- his brilliance places him amongst the great composers & his work so masterful that Beethoven bestowed a kiss of benediction on him, of his superb performance as a youngster at age 11...

I will make a Liszt of his compositions .

Why no mention of the Lisztomania phenomenon?

The piano is played with more than fingers and feet. The pianist got to have his spirit in the performance. too.

Liszt is truly an amazing artist and like others have mentioned, an "inspiration to music",and "touched by the Gods of prodigy". I couldn't describe my feelings for such talent for Liszt. Absolutely, beautiful.

In essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life.....

7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby

Does anyone else get a feeling where you have fond memory of something rather insignifican t , like talking a walk in the park while it's raining or simply waiting in the car looking at the rain, while listening to classical music and you just feel as if you could cherish that feeling for a life time?

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.

I feel the same about music as I do about books; I could not live without them. Reading and listening to good music truly complement each other.

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

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.

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.

Liszt? Chopin? Beethovan? Comparisons are impossible as they stand alone, and for their contribution s they mutually excell one another..
