Read full description of the books:
The five stars given were not for the writing style, which often descended into hyperbole, but for the magical opportunity to read one outstanding musician interpreting the life and work of another musician who was also his close friend - and that both are my top favourite musical classicists! I can't say how excited I was when I discovered this book existed. If I could go back in time for anything it would be to hear these two play. It's a little short for the geocaching challenge but I decided you couldn't get much purer an evocation of 'a book in which a famous composer is a main figure'.

Read information about the authorFranz Liszt (1811, Doborján, Hungary - 1886, Bayreuth, Germany)(Hungarian: Ferencz Liszt, in modern usage Ferenc Liszt, from 1859 to 1865 officially Franz Ritter von Liszt) (October 22, 1811 – July 31, 1886) was a Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist and teacher. He was also the father-in-law of Richard Wagner.
Liszt became renowned throughout Europe for his great skill as a performer during the 1800s. He is said to have been the most technically advanced and perhaps greatest pianist of all time. He was also an important and influential composer, a notable piano teacher, a conductor who contributed significantly to the modern development of the art, and a benefactor to other composers and performers, notably Richard Wagner and Hector Berlioz.
As a composer, Liszt was one of the most prominent representatives of the “neudeutsche schule” (“New German School”). He left behind a huge and diverse body of work, in which he influenced his forward-looking contemporaries and anticipated some 20th-century ideas and trends. Some of his most notable contributions were the invention of the symphonic poem, developing the concept of thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form and making radical departures in harmony.
