Liszt and EnglandBy William Wright
The first comprehensive study in book form of Liszt's visits to England, replete with copious illustrations, appendix, and fascinating details of several previously unknown Liszt compositions. This volume certainly breaks new ground. It is full of arcana of his life and work, of the music he played, wrote, improvised, 'corrected,' or 'lost in a fire.' William Wright charts the course of the reception history given to Liszt and his music in England from 1824 to the present day. He includes all known premiere performances of Liszt's works in the country, and offers this must-have publication, providing a wealth of material about Liszt found in no other Liszt book, to scholar and general reader alike.
