2023 American Liszt Society Festival

The 2023 edition of the annual American Liszt Society Festival will be held at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL, May 18-21. This year’s theme stresses Schubert’s influence on Liszt by commemorating the 200th anniversary of the creation/publication (1822-23) of the Wanderer Fantasy and its repercussion on Liszt’s thematic metamorphosis, which will be seen in some of the Liszt works scheduled. Equally important is the presence of Schubert’s Lieder production, which will include the complete Schöne Müllerin cycle (1823).  Other presentations include Liszt’s role as editor of selected Schubert piano works and song transcriptions. Acclaimed musicians and scholars from around the world will gather to perform and present, making this an exciting musical event for the South Florida community. There will also be a presentation of Lieder by Afro-Cuban composer José Manuel Jiménez (1852-1917), who studied with Moscheles in Leipzig and played for both Liszt and Wagner.
