Be Literate: Liszt

Franz Liszt: He's the reason we aren't supposed to use our music at recitals. It is to him we dedicate appreciation to memorizing page upon page upon page of notes that fly around.

On another note, Liszt never ceases to amaze me, and I have grown quite fond of him.  He is simply amazing. Discover him for yourself.

God gives such good gifts, doesn't he? And even if we can't play like Gould or Liszt, or compose like Liszt, Beethoven, or Bach, we can still listen.

Here's Gould, the Bach player, playing Listz's Piano Transcription of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

Maybe I'll make more posts for you to be literate in the future. For now, enjoy the music, and listen with all you've got.
