    One thought on “Franz Liszt, Vol. 1: The Virtuoso Years, 1811-1847”

    1. Brilliant Impeccably researched, engrossing to read If you can, have YouTube or something nearby if you are not already familiar with the pieces mentioned It makes the time and places come completely alive As Liszt, in addition to being a genius composer himself, transcribed many others orchestral scores to piano, you will also be transported into the musical worlds of Beethoven, Paginini, Berlioz, Saint Saens, and other greats I cannot wait to begin Walker s Volume II, Franz Liszt The Weimar Ye [...]

    2. I am so torn with respect to this book Exceedingly well researched, excellent footnotes and bibliography, a detailed picture of the early career of a geniusbut the author s utter hero worship of his subject gets eye rolling PDQ Liszt was unquestionably brilliant, but it s clear he was also an egotist, a shitty dad, and a melodramatic rockstar Which is FINE, but it got tedious sifting through Walker s desperate attempts to cast Liszt always in the most noble, chaste, misunderstood light.

    3. Finally a scholar has brought to life a compelling study of one of the most underrated composers of the nineteenth century, and in a way that is accurate, unbiased and with unbelievable passion It is a lengthy read intended for only the most erudite and devoted music lovers.

    4. EXCELLENT One of the most interesting biographies I ve read Can t wait to get my hands on Volume II The Weimar Years Have had III for half a year, and it s sitting there torturing me because I can t read it yet.

    5. Well written and researched biography Liszt is just about the opposite of what I had gathered from years of reading about music.

    6. Holy frak This guy was like Mick Jagger mixed with piano talent, long fingers and perfect pitch All swagger.
