Product description

Virtuoso pianist Franz Liszt was a key figure in the evolution of modern music. Most of his 700 compositions, which range from romantic impressionism to daring experimental pieces, were written for the piano. This survey by a well-known British composer and musicologist constitutes the most authoritative English-language study of Liszt's works. 'Mr. Searle is himself a composer of progressive outlook and he thus speaks with authority. His book was needed and he has made it a good one,' observed the Times (London) Literary Supplement. This classic study surveys the compositions in chronological order and the medium for which they were written. The author examines in detail the most important pieces and fully reviews Liszt's place in history. Subjects include romantic pieces, symphonic poems, songs, symphonies, and other works. A biographical summary illustrates the relationship between significant works and events in the composer's life. Acclaimed by Library Journal as 'a balanced, long-overdue treatment,' this study is essential for every true Lisztian student. Reprint of the Williams & Norgate 1954 edition.
