Summary

The potential reach of composer biopics is undeniably broader than most other outlets for the historical discussion of music and musicians. Accordingly, biopics have a significant influence on the position of composers and their music in the popular imagination. Liszt appears in film more often than any other composer, from cameo roles to full-fledged biopics focusing solely on him. This chapter examines how the conventions and exigencies of film have shaped the way Liszt, his life and his music are presented.
