WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Franz Liszt was the greatest keyboard virtuoso of his time; he was also a prolific composer, whose output ranged from hundreds of piano pieces to symphonies, tone poems oratorios. Taken largely from his prolific and colourful letters, and interspersed with some of his most expressive piano music, Odyssey of Love is a portrait of his relationship with the two most important women in his life: the aristocratic freethinking rebel and mother of his three children, Marie d'Agoult and the bizarre cigar-smoking intellectual Princess Carolyne von Sayn Wittgenstein.
