Yet, while his transcriptions are widely performed, few studies have investigated the role that transcriptions played in Liszts artistry, to say nothing of the impact they had on the music-making experience of his day.

Using a host of interdisciplinary methods and primary source materials, this book provides a comprehensive survey of Liszts lifelong involvement with the transcription, in which he assumed the roles of composer, collaborator, propagandist, commemorator, philosopher, and artist while simultaneously disseminating often critically the music of Beethoven, Berlioz, Schubert, Wagner, and other eighteenth- and nineteenth-century composers. By recognizing transcription as an extraordinarily flexible tool for Liszt and his contemporaries, Liszt as Transcriber provides numerous musical, cultural, and historical contexts for this fundamentally important practice of the period.
