Description

As quoted in Arthur Friedheim and Alexander Siloti, Remembering Franz Liszt (1961) .

As quoted in Arthur Friedheim and Alexander Siloti, Remembering Franz Liszt (1961) p. 138. Sorrowful and great is the artist's destiny. Translated by Henry Pleasants, Baltimore: Penguin Books Lt. 1963, . 09-110. Perhaps the greatest source of wonder in Liszt's life was that he composed anything at all, let alone anything of lasting greatness. The man who, from an early age, had crisscrossed Europe as the greatest travelling virtuoso, providing, with the onset of puberty, much material for gossip columns, might have been forgiven for taking the Wildean view, 'My art is my life', and leaving it at that. Exactly how Liszt could have found the time to compose is difficult to imagine.

This is another tome on Franz Liszt that should be snapped up when it appears at Amazon. In fact, Amazon shows 'currently unavailable' because when I finally saw the title at Amazon from one lone vendor, I bought it immediately! If it's presented again and the price is decent, grab it! Now I'll give you the reasons: one of the ways to better 'know' Liszt [and other than being Dr. Alan Walker!] is to read the tomes about Liszt from his master class students which get into the Liszt methodology and of course the man and master himself.

As an example, I have the Amy Fay 'letters home' book when she studied with Liszt, the August Göllerich diary, the Carl Lachmund diary [pricey that one but hard to find and excellent material] and even the depressing [with regard to the MIStreatment of Liszt in his final days] Lina Schmalhausen diary and now this one where more former Liszt pupils, Arthur Friedheim [1859-1932] and Alexander Siloti [1863-1945] add to the Liszt literature albeit with first hand personal knowledge of the man, master and veritable legend, Franz Liszt. This book is edited by Mark N. Grant whose own tome, "Maestros of the Pen: A List of Classical Music Criticism in America" [446 pages, published in 2001] is also highly recommended!

Liszt from the perspective of his Weimar students is the next best thing to Dr. Alan Walker's own magnificent 3 volume Franz Liszt trilogy and related books on Liszt written by Dr. Walker for a clear picture of Liszt and his methodology ranging from those famous Weimar Liszt quips a la those "uninvited guests" [Liszt buzzword for what the fraternity today calls the common 'clinker' or to the non '88' involved, 'wrong notes'], the 'dirty wash' comment or the ultimate sign that the master was displeased and his mention of the word 'conservatory' with the translation being that the pupil was not yet ready for Liszt master classes.

As I said in another review about becoming one of Liszt's pupils, and once again using an analogous phrase, to wit, 'many are called, but few are chosen' because contrary to popular belief is was de facto 'assumed' one knew the instrument quite well 'before' seeking out Franz Liszt. Or indeed, the reactions of the 'pupils' to one's playing ability which in itself could be, shall we say, a quick return trip from whence one came! In effect, the group master class with the master was a well 'earned' privilege. In one case, a student presented a letter of recommendation from royalty whereupon Liszt dryly commented, "Impressive remarks ... but more preferable to presenting such glowing letters and testaments from Queens, first allow me to hear you play." Hey, move to 2005 just for purposes of making point here, the 12th Van Cliburn and Joyce Yang [Silver medalist] speaking about nervousness in that DVD radio interview, to wit, "Actually it wasn't the day I arrived ... as much as it was hearing 'others' [emphasis mine] play."

Make a mental note on this tome when it becomes available! So too, check out the other books written by various Liszt students all of which place you right at the scene in Weimar with only the sound missing!

I love Liszt's piano music and I have been buying up any books Amazon has to offer regarding Liszt. This is one of them and I enjoyed it very much. This book tells us how much love and respect Friedheim held toward his Master Liszt. His description of one early evening lesson in Rome with Liszt of 'Harmonies du soir' made me feel like I was there with them, and now I listen to it with a little more deeper understanding of that music. The book is also about his life before and after Liszt, and I found it to be very easy read and interesting.
