One of the Brothers teaching on the plane of Muse Franz Liszt, 1811-1886. Regarded as the greatest pianist of all time, Listz's genius extended far beyond the piano to expand musical composition and performance well beyond its 19th century limitations.

As a composer, Liszt was one of the most prominent representatives of the "Neudeutsche Schule" ("New German School"). He left behind an extensive and diverse body of work in which he influenced his forward-looking contemporaries and anticipated some 20th-century ideas and trends. Some of his most notable contributions were the invention of the symphonic poem, developing the concept of thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form and making radical departures in harmony.[5] He also played an important role in popularizing a wide array of music by transcribing it for piano.
