About the Authors
  • Although the music of Franz Liszt is becoming ever more popular in the concert-hall and the subject of much recent research, there are few books available for a general reader that present up-to-date scholarship on the composer. Written by leading specialists in the field, this Companion provides an authoritative overview of Liszt's music, its context and performance practice.

    • An up-to-date view of Liszt for the non-specialist
    • The first book on Liszt to provide such comprehensive coverage
    • Invaluable chapters on performance by one of the foremost exponents of the piano music

    “This collection comprises three essays on Liszt's career and artistic legacy and eight on his compositions and their performance. The scholarship is up-to-date, and the writing is engaging throughout.”
