Several Stages - One Piano:
Liszt's attempts at integranting themes of different origins into a single work
Eszter Gyarmati

The following study explores an aesthetic problem that haunted Franz Liszt for decades, and remained unresolved in many instances: the integration of themes of different origins in a single work. I propose that the "Maometto-Mosè Fantasy", the Valse à capriccio sur deux motifs de Lucia et Parisina, the Variations de bravoure pour piano sur des themes de Paganini, the Fantasie über Motive aus Figaro und Don Juan and the God Save the Queen. Paraphrase de concert all reflect the composer's intense concern with this idea. Analyses of these works suggest that Liszt was able to satisfactorily solve the problem of integration only if he could rely on some kind of "outside" musical help, like the common genre of the waltz in the Valse à capriccio; or if he succeeded in "sublimating" one of the themes, as in the case of God Save the Queen. For want of such extraordinary solutions, all other compositions that experimented with the integration of themes of different origins in the late 1830s and early 1840s were eventually buried in oblivion by Liszt himself.
