Each Essay in this book illuminates aspects of the Symposium theme and sub-theme while encompassing Liszt's evolutionary path from the late middle ages to us. Well-documented revelations about music, the other arts, Liszt's circle, contemporary and modern historical, social, and political events, the parallel evolution of Liszt's compositional reception and the piano, all intertwine within each essay and among them.
