Arguably the greatest of all piano virtuosi, Liszt was one of the few composers of his day who had the technique to perform his own compositions. A child prodigy pianist who could read music before he could recite the alphabet, Franz Liszt is one of the most outrageously gifted and most controversial figures in classical music. Unconventional in both his approach to composing and his personal life, he had a reputation for courting hostility and riding rough-shod over other people's feelings, particularly those of his musical peers. This lavishly illustrated book chronicles Liszt's life and times with the help of many rare photographs and contemporary prints. With numerous quotations from the people who knew him best, extracts from personal letters and diaries, this remarkable book gives an intimate picture of the composer's private life, and also investigates the complex religious and emotional forces which inspired his music.

The Illustrated Lives of the Great Composers Schumann

Frederic Chopin, by Winterhalter A characteristic example of Schumann's use of
the two personas of Eusebius and Florestan comes in his famous review of
Chopin, published in 1832 in the Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung, before the
Neue Zeitschrift first appeared: ... Chopin! I know you and your new-fangled
enthusiasm!
