Biography

Pianist, composer, conductor, dandy, intellectual and religious father, Liszt fascinated 19th century Europe. A child prodigy, he was taught by Czerny and Salieri in Vienna. Already famous at the age of fifteen, he revolutionised piano techniques and established the recital for piano solo as he covered the world performing either his opera transcriptions, Years of Pilgrimage or Hungarian Rhapsodies.
