Liszt letters in the Library of Congress by Franz Liszt ( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The correspondence of Franz Liszt is voluminous. It has been estimated that some 6,000 letters have been published, with a similar number unpublished. Given his career as concert artist, composer, conductor and teacher, it is difficult to comprehend how he found the time for correspondence. Yet he did and, thankfully, considerable insight may be gained from this as to his relationships, compositional methods - especially with regard to publication of his works - philosophical thoughts, attitudes to literature, to other composers, other artists in different spheres, even, though more rarely, his approach to politics and, equally important, his religious leanings." "The Library of Congress collections comprise nearly 300 items, including letters dating from 1829 to shortly before his death, the vast majority of which have not previously appeared in print, while those that have been published are sometimes incomplete or incorrectly dated. This publication presents one of the most wide-ranging sources of first-hand information on the composer not yet made public."--BOOK JACKET

Correspondence of Franz Liszt and the Comtesse Marie d'Agoult by Franz Liszt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Franz Liszt’s correspondence with the Comtesse Marie d’Agoult, herself a celebrated historian and the mother of Liszt’s three children, has only recently been made available in anything like respectable form. A decade ago French scholar Serge Gut, together with Jacqueline Bellas, published a ‘definitive’ edition of the surviving Liszt-d’Agoult letters, thereby replacing the heavily edited and incomplete edition of the 1830s. Working closely with Gut, Michael Short has translated the entire correspondence into English, adding new footnotes and references in the process
