Franz Liszt: "Truth is a great flirt"

  • Music embodies feeling without forcing it to contend and combine with thought, as it is forced in most arts and especially in the art of words.
  • I conclude that the Wagnerian operas which are already in the repertoire, and other master works as well, stand in no further need of my services.
  • I did not compose my work as one might put on a church vestment… rather it sprung from the truly fervent faith of my heart, such as I have felt it since my childhood.
  • I find little in the works of Beethoven, Berlioz, Wagner and others when they are led by a conductor who functions like a windmill.
  • I foster a sorrowful conception of affection. Make no sacrifices.
  • In Hungary all native music, in its origin, is divided naturally into melody destined for song or melody for the dance.
  • Inspiration is enough to give expression to the tone in singing, especially when the song is without words.
  • It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy.
  • It is my fervent wish and my greatest ambition to leave a work with a few useful instructions for the pianists after me.

Hungarian Art History and Sitemap

Hungarian art has been both stunted and spurred on by pivotal historical events.
King Stephen’s conversion to Catholicism brought Romanesque and Gothic art and architecture, while the Turkish occupation nipped Hungary’s Renaissance in the bud.
The Habsburgs opened the doors wide to baroque influences. The arts thrived under the Dual Monarchy, through Trianon and even under fascism. Under communism much money was spent on classical music and 'correct' theatre. Under current economic conditions funding for the arts is being slashed.
