Franz Liszt is generally acknowledged to be the greatest pianist. Someone who heard him in person said his playing “was all sunshine and dazzling splendour.” As David Andruss explains in this video, Liszt wrote three Liebesträume. They were originally intended as songs, each based on a poem idealizing a type of love. The poem that inspired this third “Dream of Love” reminds you to “love as long as you can.” Liszt’s version of this work is elegant, elaborate, and difficult. If you listen to a concert performance of Liebestraum you will undoubtedly be impressed by the “dazzling splendour.” But with this satisfying and approachable arrangement, your students can also shape and enjoy this beautifully engaging melody. Dream your own dream!
