What attracts me to Liszt is this: he appears in so many different roles and in so many styles.  Yet I feel there is somewhere a mysterious centre where everything comes together; the multiplicity of roles and identities was probably the source of his musical creativity. What I particularly like is his “limitless” quality.  Of course that’s a criterium valid for all Romantics, but in Liszt we see it everywhere. He never kept to boundaries – in the best sense of the word. Geographically, he is very European, changing countries, changing languages, and in an age of increasing nationalism, he remained a European. This is extraordinary.

From an interview with Nike Wagner, pp. 70–74.
