Fabulous Franz Liszt

Liszt was born in Raiding, Hungary in 1811 and died in Bayreuth in 1886. This Hungarian composer and pianist gave his first recital at the age of nine. In Vienna (1821), he had lessons from Czerny and Salieri.

Liszt lived in Paris for a substantial amount of time (1823-1835), meeting and becoming friends with famous painters, writers and musicians including Chopin and Berlioz. He eventually returned to Vienna (1838) and London (1840 and 1841), the latter being a place that he visited and performed in during the 1820s.

Franz Liszt was arguably one of the greatest pianists ever. As a composer, he had secured a place in history with his contributions to, among other things, the symphonic poem and cyclic form.

An Amazing Liszt Fact

Liszt’s pupils anticipated the impressionistic movement through their use of forward-looking harmonies. Some of these pupils included Rosenthal, Lamond and Siloti.
