Liszt: His Life and Music (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Franz Liszt (1811-1886) was one of the most innovative, controversial, and influential musicians in history, and one of the most famous and colourful figures of the nineteenth century. In this comprehensive introduction we will explore many aspects of his life and work, including his:

  • early years as pianist and sensational international concert tours
  • development of the resources of the piano
  • pivotal position in the history of performance practice
  • invention of challenging new musical forms
  • orchestral and sacred choral works
  • flamboyant and multifaceted personality
  • influential work as a teacher, writer, and thinker
  • restless last years and strange, forward-looking late works

Among the recordings to be used are some from the early twentieth century featuring Liszt's own pupils. No previous training in music is necessary to enjoy this course.
