Liszt, Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 [Orchestra]

Franz Liszt (October 22, 1811 – July 31, 1886) was a 19th century Hungarian[1][2][3] composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, and teacher.

Liszt became renowned throughout Europe during the nineteenth century for his great, virtuosic skill as a performer. He was said by his contemporaries to have been the most technically-advanced pianist of his age and perhaps the greatest pianist of all time. He was also an important and influential composer, a notable piano teacher, a conductor 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.
