Audience Reviews for Song Without End

Often ponderous and deathly slow but Liszt's music makes up for a great deal.

Super Reviewer


Song without End is biography of Franz Liszt and gives you a snapshot of his transformations from pianist to composer to religious monk. Although I cannot confirm the complete accuracies of the movies, I learned much about Liszt and was not aware of his enthusiasm of Wagner and his works. The movie features the piano of Jorge Bolet who is a fine Liszt interpreter as well as symphonic works of Liszt such as the Mephisto Waltz and Les Preludes. Overall I enjoyed this movie, but can only recommend it for those quite interested in Liszt.
