Der blinde Sänger, a Melodram by Liszt

Der blinde Sänger S 350 by Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

Based on a text by Aleksey Tolstoy, The Blind Singer is the last melodrama Liszt composed. The work’s text is, as a whole, an advocacy of beauty and artistic inspiration. As Antonio Simón points out in his program notes, the composer may have identified himself with the bard blind man who features in the poem; after all, Liszt always considered himself a messenger of art.
