Franz Liszt: A Legacy

This program is an incredibly unique opportunity for audiences to gain insight into the life and works of Franz Liszt. The program is a monodrama, in which Michael Schneider dresses and acts as Franz Liszt. It combines performances of some of Liszt’s greatest works with enlightening historical facts and emotional understanding of the works and composer.

“Franz Liszt: A Legacy” is an original script based on factual events of the composer’s life. In it, Michael portrays an aged Franz Liszt reflecting upon his life and pondering his legacy. Audiences will gain an appreciation of the depth of Liszt’s character, beyond that of simply a pianistic showman. Michael performs some of the composer’s most demanding works and the simple staging is supported with a PowerPoint backdrop and several key props. This program has been featured by:
