A Dramatic Reconstruction of Liszt's visit to the City at the age of thirteen, in the year 1825 by A. R. PARKER and G. H. DAYNE
Characters Mr. Ward, Manager of the Theatre
Royal in 1825 Mr. Wilson, Landlord of the Albion
Hotel
Liszt Liszt 's father
A Newspaper Reporter
Produced by FELIX FELTON
Liszt was twelve years of age when he first visited London with his father. He was already known in Paris as the ' ninth wonder of the world '.
On June 21, 1824, Liszt gave his first concert at the Argyll Rooms, and a week later at Drury Lane ' consented to display his inimitable powers on the New Grande Piano Forte, invented by Sebastian Erard '. His remarkable virtuosity and powers of improvisation caused such intense interest that he was received by George IV at Carlton House.
Liszt returned to France, but in the summer of the neit year again visited London, where he played to George IV at Windsor. During June Liszt visited Manchester and played there twice.
The present programme is to celebrate the anniversary of the occasion. At the Albion Hotel the young Liszt will be heard pleading with his father to be allowed to abandon public life for the peace of the Church. He will be heard playing a Hummel Concerto, improvising at the piano, and being interviewed by the local Press.
