Franz Liszt (1811-1886). Famous across Europe for the astounding virtuosity of his piano playing, Franz Liszt was also one of the greatest composers and arrangers of his day. A student of Carl Czerny and Antonio Salieri, Liszt tailored his music to his own pianistic skill – making his works some of the most difficult written to that time. His illegitimate daughter Cosima eventually became the devoted wife of Richard Wagner.
