The Lost Chord: November 1 - Liszt of Saints

liszt_caricature_1.jpg

A charismatic showman who became one of Europe’s most famous performers, Franz Liszt turned his back on the concert stage at the age of 35.  He devoted himself to composition, teaching, and championing others’ music.  He never accepted payment from his students, emerged from retirement only for charitable causes, and eventually took minor orders in the Catholic Church.  For All Saints’ Day, sample from two works inspired by Liszt’s fascination with saints – the oratorios “The Legend of St. Elisabeth” and “St. Stanislaus.”  Add them to your Liszt, this Sunday at 10 pm.
