Listening – Day 21

Franz_Liszt_by_Nadar,_March_1886.pngThis week, we lend our ear to Franz Liszt! Liszt: a Hungarian pianist and composer. He was highly influential and original. He was well known in Europe during the Romantic movement.

In 1865, Liszt received the tonsure, a practice to Roman Catholic monks and was hence known as the Abbé Liszt. On July 31, 1865, Liszt received the four minor orders in the Catholic Church. Though he pursued this new vocation, he continued to work on new compositions. In his later years, Liszt he established the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music in Budapest. Enjoy!
