Would you listen to Great Masters: Liszt - His Life and Music again? Why?
The Great Courses series can often be a mixed bag of tricks, but Robert Greenberg's "Great Masters: Liszt - His Life and Music" is the third Great Masters lecture series I've downloaded and the best so far. Not only has Professor Greenberg enlightened and clarified certain aspects of Liszt's career, his insight into the scores and physical requirements of the performers were fascinating to listen to. Of all the varied Great Courses I've sat in on, Greenberg's are the most thoughtful, well researched, best organized, most clearly articulated and, without a doubt, contain the greatest level of enthusiasm. My only complaint was that the course eventually ended. The professionalism of Professor Greenberg was exceptional. No stuttering "ah, ah" pauses, extreme organization and captivating audience engagement. The man loves his work and succeeds in passing that endearment on to the listener. Justice was certainly done to the great Franz Liszt.
What did you like best about this story?
The professionalism of the lecturer. No "ah, ahs", extreme organization and audience engagement. The man loves his work and succeeds in passing the love on to the listener.
Which scene was your favorite?
Impossible to say. Every moment was riveting.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was surprised that someone so flamboyant and as self-engrossed as Liszt could be so generous.
Any additional comments?
I plan on listening to all of Professor Greenberg's lectures. I would strongly recommend Great Courses engage him for more courses.
