19th century Hungarian composer Franz Liszt.....C/NC

I saw Totentanz performed last night by the CSO/Thibaudet. It was quite impressive and dark.

BTW - does anyone know of any death metal groups that have based a song/theme on the "dies irae" plainchant?

I dunno, but the fictional band, VTO from Salman Rushdie's the Ground beneath Her Feet has a whole record devoted to the dies irae.


That probably doesn't help.

i'll forever think of bugs bunny playing the hungarian rhapsody on the out of control train in that one warner bros cartoon. its a classic piece. liszt was kind of the steve vai of his day in some ways, though. Endless showoffy technical turds.

technically demanding, but still elegant and beautiful

i wouldn't go so far as to call them "turds." they obviously have merits aside from the complexity of the phrases.

Is that worth reading? I loved Midnight's Children, The Satanic Verses, and (to a lesser degree) The Moor's Last Sigh but had thought that everything he's written since moving to New York and hooking up with super models was piss-poor. The sell-out! :P

This past week I've been learning The Piano Sonata on guitar! (ok I'm still on the first page...)

I used to think FL was total flash Crap, then I read Alfred Brendel's essay about him (Liszt Misunderstood, I think) and it made me reconsider.

The Piano Sonata in B minor and his freaky, deeply unsettled late piano works are the pieces to change your mind.

This was the record that made me come round to a solid NC:

Rockers might enjoy pieces like this, Liszt in full-on frash metal style:

Tom and Jerry's 'The Cat Concerto'. Even as a kid, I thought the music was amazing.

I started piano lessons when I was three, moved to RCM study when I was maybe eight, and continued til I got my RCM Grade 8 in high school.

The only piece that I ever appreciated as music in and of itself, not something I saw as something to learn for piano lessons, was Liszt's Consolation No. 1.

I don't know anything about art music, but I enjoy Liszt's Consolations generally, and am drawn to other work in that vein—nocturnes, I guess, is what they're called. I should look into this more.

Liszt was Not Crap once he dropped the Steve Vai thing.

If you have a quiet 40 mins sometime, it's worth making it to the end of this incredible piece:
