Liszt's only sonata was completed on February 2, 1853, and was dedicated to Schumann in acknowledgment of the dedication of the latter's great Fantasia, Op. 17. In every way the sonata was an epoch-making work. It is undoubtedly one of Liszt's greatest compositions and on every page of it there is evidence of the immense imagination that went to its making.
