Liszt in Germany 1840-1845: A Study in Sources, Documents, and the History of Reception (Franz Liszt Studies, No 2) (Dance & Music Series,) by Michael Saffle



This work traces the composer's German tours from Leipzig and Dresden to major cities like Munich and Berlin, and to such out-of-the-way places as Rolandseck, Solingen, Liegnitz, Jena, and Ludwigsburg. Cited or paraphrased in the text are quotations from more than 2,000 sources, many of them new to Liszt scholarship. Separate chapters are devoted to Liszt's reception by German critics, and to the German compositions Liszt completed for voice, male chorus, and piano during these tours. The book concludes with a listing of all Liszt's German concerts and with translations of fifteen especially lengthy and interesting reviews.
