πŸ“œ Happy Birthday to the Composer of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2!

October 22, 2023 0 Comments

So how can you celebrate Franz Liszt's birthday?

πŸ“œ Listen to Liebestraum No. 3 in A-flat major.  

πŸ“œ  Choose a Liszt piece to start learning as a repertoire piece. 

  • Here are my personal suggestions!
    • Consolation No. 1 in E major
    • Consolation No. 3 in D-flat major

πŸ“œ  Watch Victor Borge play Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.

πŸ“œ  Watch Bugs Bunny and Tom & Jerry play Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

Which one do you think came first? Let's settle this once and for all!

πŸ“œ  Watch Mao Asada skate to Liebestraum No. 3

πŸ“œ  Learn German and French.

πŸ“œ  Compare Paganini's final movement of Violin Concerto No. 3 and Liszt's La Campanella

πŸ“œ  Read books about art and religion. 

πŸ“œ  Read his book, The Life of Chopin. (ebook)

πŸ“œ  Read The Holy Bible.

"I pray to God that He may powerfully illumine your heart through His faith and His love. You may scoff at this feeling as bitterly as you like. I cannot fail to see and desire in it the only salvation. Through Christ alone, through resigned suffering in God, salvation and rescue come to us." -Franz Liszt

πŸ“œ  Read a biography about Franz Liszt. 

What are some of your ideas to celebrate Liszt's birthday? 


P.S. Yes, I did just use a list emoji to symbolize Liszt.
