Description - Analecta Lisztiana III by Michael Saffle
Franz Liszt was more than a composer, pianist, and polemicist; he was honored by popes and prelates, befriended by emperors and revolutionaries, and knew poets and artists of almost every variety and temperament.
Liszt and the Birth of Modern Europe deals with such complex and fascinating topics as Liszt's entanglements with Agnes Street-Klindworth and the Vatican Bank, his literary and musical forays into social criticism, and his oratorios, songs, and late piano pieces (including a recently-discovered manuscript of one of his most famous Venetian works). The volume's seventeen essays were first presented at the international Liszt conference held in December 1998 at the Rockefeller Foundation's Villa Serbeloni in Bellagio, Italy, and organized by Rossana Dalmonte and Michael Saffle.
Other contributors to this volume include Cornelia Szabo-Knotik (Austria), James Deaville and Pauline Pocknell (Canada), Jean-Pierre Bartoli and Cecile Reynaud (France), William Drabkin (Great Britain), Zsuzsanna Domokos(Hungary), Marco Beghelli, Paolo Bidoli, Maurizio Giani, Egidio Pozzi, and Nunzio Salemi(Italy), and Ben Arnold, Paul Bertagnolli, and Mary Sue Morrow (United States). Illustrated with photographs, documentary facsimiles, and musical examples.
