“Not wanting to be left out, Grandpa made lists of his greatest admirers and most fearsome enemies. The cat did the same.”

‘yassified’ classical composers
Well...that looks...wrong
Tumblr media
And why does Vivaldi look like one of the Kardashians
Tumblr media
Honestly...They could have just kept Liszt the way he was in the first place
Tumblr media
Schostakovitch is the only one that kinda works

Franz Liszt was truly one of the men ever
- became a lifelong alcoholic to cope with his depression at about 16
- was proud of being Hungarian. Did not speak Hungarian
- Czerny thought young Liszt's playing was a mess (but fortunately saw potential in the kid)
- penned his academic/historical writings with truly extravagant purple prose
- was a Lord Byron fanboy and tried to steal his look
- was a fail dad who was too busy touring and being a sex object to take care of his 3 kids. essentially left them in the care of his relatives for the entirety of their childhood
- sure did look ratty as hell, like he was desperately in want of soap and a hairbrush
- was apparently hot enough to turn the heads of men as well as women. fans basically wanted his gamer boy bath water. Even in his old age some people were down horrendous for the gangly rat man
- wrote a whole book about his genuine appreciation of the Romani and their contributions to Hungarian music, yet also fell into romanticizing them as untamed transcendental musical geniuses
- was mocked by the press for making too much Expressions(TM) while playing the piano
- wrote "vibrato" on a piano score at one point
- alongside his original music, also wrote an impressive amount of what were basically impossible piano covers
