HOW TO OBTAIN CDs/DVDs
FRANZ LISZT, VISIONARY
From 2005-to 2015 people traveled to Maryland from all corners of the world to enjoy the Liszt-Garrison Festival & Competition, born of love, sustained by hard work, and fueled by the power of music. Each year musicians and music lovers alike experienced miracles of transformation, “… special moments when music lifts our hearts and mysteriously links our souls.” Franz Liszt: Visionary – presented in October 2013 was a four-day event co-hosted by Notre Dame of Maryland University and The Embassy of Hungary in Washington, DC. Running in conjunction with the competition, the festival has offered participants significant experiences that transcend the simple goals of “winning.” Several recordings featuring the music of Liszt and American Composers have taken place during the first decade of the competition. Two CDs came to life from the competition recordings: Awardees of the 2005/2006 competitions were featured in the first CD described below. The second recording, Franz Liszt: Visionary, is a two– CD collection featuring artists performing works by Liszt during three competitions, namely 2009, 2011, and 2013. Most important to note is that all these recordings are brought to the listener unedited and reflect the artists “live” interpretation during the competition. We trust these recordings will continue to inspire and influence future musicians and music lovers.
