Liszt: Sämtliche Schriften 3
Die Goethe-Stiftung / De la fondation Goethe
Franz Liszt's writings of the Goethe Foundation are perhaps more vital and interesting today than ever before. In the period of political upheavals following the revolutionary year 1848, Liszt came to view Weimar’s great tradition as the embodiment of the common cultural heritage of all German states and mini-states. The etablishment of a Goethe Foundation was understood as a prerequisite for a comprehensive program of artistic endowment, competitions and festivals in all fields of art.
