A Portrait of
the Artist as Hero
More than anyone before him-
more than Beethoven, Byron, even the preternatural Paganini-
it was Liszt who created one of the most
enduring archetypes of
the Romantic era: that of
the artist ''who walks with
God and brings down fire from heaven in
order to kindle the hearts of

the time, and why it drove others, Brahms and his friend Clara Schumann among them, up the proverbial wall.

jaded critics and listeners everywhere he went with
his sheer virtuosity and almost unbelievable musical gifts.
Two Sides of a
Liszt was an
innovative composer both for
his own instrument and on an
orchestral scale, a
visionary about the future of
big-hearted developer of
young talent who frequently taught for
no pay, and a
sincere lover of
gypsy freedom as well as Franciscan faith and charity.
Liszt also had many
sides to his personal life.
He was a
adulation and women, sleeping with
everyone from countesses and princesses to wild-eyed young groupies; a
well-meaning but absent and rather indifferent
father to three out-of-wedlock children; and a
Hungarian patriot who spent most of
his time in
Paris, Germany, and Rome.
Additionally, Liszt was a
self-conscious artiste, damaging his own reputation by
publishing just about every piece of
music that came from his pen and a
proud meritocrat from peasant stock who nonetheless had a

his zest for

the verb to be.''

Finally, the Liszt family landed in
Paris, where Franz performed almost nonstop.
The aristocrats of
the city loved Franz, and he absorbed their language, culture, and sophistication.
During these years, Liszt wrote his Etudes en douze exercices, which he would rewrite as the Grand Etudes in
1838 and as the Transcendental Etudes in
After his father died in
1827, and he had a
breakdown over the ending of a
love affair, he stopped practicing the piano and did not
write any music.
For three years he was depressed, ill, and apathetic.
Finally, the July Revolution of
Paris blasted Liszt out of
his lethargy and reignited his creative energies.
After the revolution, Liszt became a
popular figure at
Parisian salons and met Nicolo Paganini and Hector Berlioz, two men who would help shape his vision of
himself as a
composer and pianist.
In 1847, Liszt met Princess Carolyne von Sayn-Wittgenstein, who would become his soulmate and mistress.
Liszt took up conducting and composing for
the orchestra in
Weimar, ultimately turning out his ''symphonic poems,'' and Faust and Dante symphonies.
After considering the priesthood following the deaths of
his children, Liszt's final years were filled with
music, traveling, honors, and a

the keyboard, was derivative and seriously uneven as a
