The Real Deal

Mephistopheles disguised as an Abbé was how one wag described Franz Liszt, as if donning a cassock was a fashion statement and not the ultimate expression in a belief in God stretching over his entire life.

During this 200th anniversary of Franz Liszt's birth the Piano explores the religious music of the composer from his ground breaking Harmonies Poetiques et Religieuses to works inspired by the writings of Lamartine and ending with a glorious performance of a tribute to Liszt's namesake, St Francis of Assisi.

Hear Liszt's musical assertions of a life of Faith on the Piano this Easter Sunday at 5 pm on KPAC & KTXI.
