Like other artists in the age of Romanticism who sought new sources of inspiration, Liszt showed a keen interest in the music of cultures other than his own, like medieval church music and Gypsy music. However, he was not exposed to traditional folk music as it is understood today – or what Bartók called peasant music. In his sacred music, Liszt drew on a variety of sources, from the Gregorian tradition to the remarkable composers of Renaissance and Baroque church music, such as Lassus and Johann Sebastian Bach. Conceived at the intersection of diverse genres, this production has a special concept and focuses on Liszt’s church music. Organ works, improvised movements, folk music and religious folk songs reflect on each other.
