Liszt and the Other Arts
Franz Liszt is well-known as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic Era, as well as possibly the greatest pianist in history. He had enormous influence on many of the composers that directly followed him, setting the stage for revolutionary developments in harmonic language and musical form. At the same time he admired many other great artists working in music and other art forms, both his contemporaries and his predecessors. This admiration found its way into many of Liszt’s piano compositions. We will investigate and hear works inspired by the painter Raphael, the poet Petrarch, and fellow composers Schumann, and Paganini, including: Sposalizio, Sonetto 104, Widmung and Paganini Etude No.2; and enjoy the interconnection of the arts that is at the core of these wonderful compositions for the piano.
