Un virtuose visionnaire
The film is a portrait of the composer Franz Liszt. It focuses on his life as a virtuoso pianist, composer and teacher, as well as his importance for the future development of music, all of which explain today’s fascination with the phenomenon “Liszt-mania”.
His life was that of a polyglot travelling widely in a Europe under construction. The film examines the ties between his music and the religious, political and aesthetic transformations of his time.
