Franz Liszt (in Hungarian: Liszt Ferencz, in modern use Liszt Ferenc and from 1859 to 1867 officially Franz Ritter von Liszt)(October 22, 1811 – July 31, 1886) was a 19th-century Hungarian composer, pianist, conductor and teacher.
Liszt became renowned in Europe during the nineteenth century for his virtuosic skill as a pianist. He was said by his contemporaries to have been the most technically advanced pianist of his age (though Liszt vehemently denied this, stating that Charles-Valentin Alkan undoubtedly had superior technical facility), and in the 1840s he was considered by some to be perhaps the greatest pianist of all time.
