Franz Liszt (1811-1886)
(Article ID: 191 - republished on Sun 26/01/2020 from artissimo.gr)

NATIONALITY
Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Franz Liszt was Hungarian.

IN GENERAL
Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Liszt is considered one of the greatest piano virtuosos, while he was also a quite appreciable composer. Liszt was a prodigy child, but he also had mystic tendencies that later in his life led him to become a priest. Liszt constantly travelled around Europe, where his unique talent always enjoyed apotheosis. Liszt helped a lot of people, and a lot of musicians as well, and especially his son-in-law, Wagner. Perhaps Liszt's compositions have not enjoyed the attention that they deserve because of the virtuosity character that are often including.

STYLE
Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Liszt's style is particularly romantic, naturally with classical references - because of the effect of the great classical composers that had lightly preceded - but the element of virtuosity is stressed enough. Several transcriptions of orchestral works for the piano existed, while Liszt tried to convert the piano itself into a small orchestra! From an artistic point of view, Liszt's overall work is very significant.

WORKS
Franz Liszt (1811-1886): Liszt's output consists of both secular and religious works : Religious Music - 5 Masses, 6 Large Psalms, 1 Requiem, 2 Oratorios. Secular Vocal Music - Chorales and 78 Melodies, Hungarian, French and German. Works for Orchestra - 12 Symphonic Poems, 2 Symphonies (Dante and Faust) and Orchestrations of his own Piano Works. Works for Piano - 2 Concertos and the Work "Dance of Death" for Piano and Orchestra, 24 grand Studies, 12 Transcendental Studies, Studies on Paganini's themes, "Years of Pilgrimage", "Harmonies Poetic and Religious", Sonata for Piano in B minor, 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies, 200 Transcriptions for Piano, 100 Fantasias and Paraphrases on themes of well-known Operas. Arrangements of all kinds and 7 volumes with various contents (reviews, reflections).
