Brings together the story of Liszt's encounters with the English provinces, Scotland and Ireland during the two tours he made in 1840 and 1841. The book uses extracts and line drawings from the diaries of John Parry and from Liszt's letters to a variety of individuals.
Liszt, a dominant figure in the Romantic Movement, has been the subject of a number of scholarly studies. However many of the subjects of his intermittent relationship with Britain and with a largely philistine British public, have necessarily been overlooked in earlier depictions of the broad sweep of his life. Dr Allsobrook brings together the story of Liszt's encounters with the English provinces, Scotland and Ireland during the two tours he made in 1840 and 1841. Using extracts and line drawings from the diaries of John Parry and from Liszt's letters home, the book provides a rich social context to the dialogue.
