Description

The life of Franz Liszt was as daring and spectacular as his music. Famed throughout Europe as the greatest pianist of the nineteenth century, he was one of the most original and prophetic composers who ever lived. Beautiful in youth, glowering in age, his high-profile love affairs were the talk of the town wherever he went and his generosity to young musicians was legendary. In this account of his epic life, actors’ readings combine with plentiful musical excerpts to paint a living portrait of a highly complex man.

    This is a very enlightening audio book. It introduced me to pieces of Liszt of which I was not the least aware. It also clarified rumors I had heard about his relationship to women. I would have given it 5 stars if they had talked about his death. Nothing was said about that.

    It was great to have the text mixed with long periods of his music. Brought so much to life and gave so much of the feeling of this great musician.
