The virtuoso | Franz Liszt, 1811- 1886

Lyonel Feininger, The Virtuoso, 1920, woodcut

“For the virtuoso, musical works are in fact nothing but tragic and moving materializations of his emotions; 
he is called upon to make them speak, weep, sing and sigh, to recreate them in accordance with his own 
consciousness. In this way he, like the composer, is a creator, for he must have within himself those passions 
that he wishes to bring so intensely to life.”

Franz Liszt, 1811- 1886
