Liszt Franz (1811-1886)

Biography of Liszt Franz:

Liszt's fame as a virtuoso and major composer for the piano has tended to obscure the fact that his interest in the organ extended over much of his artistic life, and organists owe to Liszt three of the most valued contributions to the Nineteenth Century repertoire: The Fantasia and Fugue on 'Ad nos, ad Salutarem, undam' (1850) the Fantasia and Fugue on Bach (1855), and the Variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen (1863). These three works, along with the Sonata on the 14th Psalm by Julius Rebuke (1857), Liszt's most gifted pupil, represent a turning point in the history of organ music, Following a century of relative neglect by established composers. They are all strikingly original in design and draw upon the tonal resources of the instrument in a new and highly dramatic way.
