The Life and Times of Franz Liszt

Many people believed that Hungarian-born Franz Liszt was the greatest piano player of all time. Certainly he was the first musical superstar. During an eight-year concert tour in the 1840s, he revolutionized the way that pianists performed in public. He had several love affairs before taking Holy Orders in the Catholic Church. One of the most versatile figures in music history, he was also a composer, concert promoter, and conductor. He was a very generous man, freely offering support and encouragement to younger musicians.
