Franz Liszt | Liszt Ferenc or Ferencz Liszt

The winter is arriving soon and there are still some colourful sights from the remaining of the Autumn right ‘in front’ of Liszt Ferenc. He was an important and influential composer, who contributed significantly to the modern development of the art, and a benefactor to other composers and performers, notably Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Edvard Grieg and Alexander Borodin.

What’s most amazing: He left behind an extensive and diverse body of work, in which he influenced his forward-looking contemporaries and anticipated some 20th-century ideas and trends. He invented the symphonic poem, developing the concept of thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form and making radical departures in harmony.

Who is the most influential person in your city? What kind of influences does he/she has?
