Course Description

Franz Liszt, one of the greatest virtuoso pianists, performed before crowds of adoring fans who fought over his handkerchiefs and broken piano strings to keep as souvenirs.  This prompted the German poet, Heine to dub the term “Lisztomania” to describe the phenomenon.  But Liszt gave it all up at age 35 to devote himself to composition.  His personal life might still suit the tabloids, if they had existed.  He considered entering the priesthood on several occasions, but also had affairs with two married noblewomen.  All that aside, he contributed to radically innovative harmony and invented the symphonic poem.  Mr. Kendall Bailey introduces you to the life and work of this charismatic and influential musical genius.
