Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Liszt's songs are among his least performed works. With the bicentenary of his birth upon us, much of his output will be performed and recorded, and no doubt re-assessed. The composer himself was aware that he was difficult to categorize, and that the public face he had was as a flashy virtuoso pianist composer - a reputation that survives to this day, as the Rick Wakeman's 1975s rock-opera 'Lisztomania' (filmed by Ken Russell, and starring The Who's Roger Daltry as Liszt) testifies. Liszt manages to adapt the 'feel' of the music depending on the language he was setting - so a French text and the music 'sounds' of French origin and so on. Such stylistic flexibility can also be found in his orchestral, choral and solo piano works making this great composer a difficult customer in an age where we like to 'pigeon-hole things. The songs require great skill from both singer and accompanist to reveal their many treasures.
