Liebestraum – Franz Liszt

on September 2, 2021

Franz Liszt (1811-1886) was born in Raiding, Hungary. As a virtuoso concert pianist, he toured all over Europe. From 1835 to 1839, he lived with his lover and patroness, Comtesse d’Agoult. They had three children. In 1847, he met and fell in love with Princess Carolyne zu Sayne-Wittgenstein and lived with her until his death. Liszt was a contemporary of such illustrious composers as Richard Wagner and Edvard Grieg. His compositions are distinguished by a romantic, dreamy quality that evokes great feelings of passion and idealized Love. Liebestraum No. 3 (Dream of Love) is one of his most memorable favorites. I have personally loved this piece since I was a teenager.

    I can see why you like it. Few things speak to you like piano music. My other favorite is acoustic guitar, like Jesse Cook with ‘Mario Takes a Walk’ or ‘Cafe Mocha’.
