Winning an Oscar for Best Music Score and a Golden Globe for Best Picture, this biopic tells the story of Hungarian pianist Franz Liszt, exploring the effect his reckless romantic affairs had on his musical career.
Liszt (Dirk Bogarde) is unhappily married to Countess Marie D'Agoult (Genevieve Page) and considers quitting performing in order to devote his life to God. However, he then meets Princess Carolyne (Capucine), the wife of Prince Nicholas (Ivan Desny) of Russia, and instantly falls in love with her. Liszt follows the princess on her tour around Europe and eventually leaves his wife, hoping to marry Carolyne. However, Nicolas is not ready to give her up.

Music and Film series

Music has long been used in film to help create drama, including creation of mood, suspense, and portrayal of characters. However, each of the films in this series focuses on music as a central theme, as a unifying biographical element, as a motivating force. These films have been chosen to complement our Autumn concerts – Romantic Piano and Virtuoso Violin.
