Great Piano Virtuosos of Our Time: A Classic Account of Studies with Liszt, Chopin, Tausig and Henselt
Wilhelm von Lenz (au); Philip Reder (ed)
A classic of piano literature, first published in German in 1872, with the first English edition appearing in New York in 1899. Wilhelm von Lenz, pupil and friend of both Liszt and Chopin and who also knew Tausig, Henselt and Cramer, provides unique, intimate portraits of these legendary musicians, reminding us that they were not only musical geniuses but very human. One is enthralled by his description of his first meeting with Liszt and his attempt to play on Liszt’s specially prepared practice piano; his experiences with Chopin and his disastrous introduction to George Sand; by his meetings with the aged and almost forgotten Cramer and with the fiery Carl Tausig, Liszt’s favorite pupil; and his account of Henselt, who gave but 3 concerts in 33 years.
