SYMHC Classics: Lisztomania


Franz Liszt, circa 1846, by Joseph Kriehuber Public domain

This 2015 episode is all about pianist, composer and conductor Franz Liszt. He was basically the first rock star who drove fans into fits of swooning and screaming. Some fans even stole the detritus of his life (unfinished coffee, broken piano strings) to carry with them.
