We celebrate the bi-centenary of Franz Liszt’s birth in 2011. His life was as daring and spectacular as his music. Famed throughout Europe as the greatest pianist of the 19th century, Liszt was one of the most original and prophetic composers who ever lived. Beautiful in youth, glowering in age, his high-profile love affairs were the talk of the town wherever he went and his generosity to young musicians was legendary. In this account of his epic life, actors’ readings combine with plentiful musical excerpts to paint a living portrait of a highly complex man.
