About the Author
Jonathan Kregor is Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. He is the author of Liszt as Transcriber (Cambridge University Press, 2010), winner of the inaugural Alan Walker Book Award from the American Liszt Society, as well as articles and reviews in numerous academic journals. Since 2012 he has been editor of the Journal of the American Liszt Society. His research interests in musical reproduction, confluences of virtuosity and gender, and music and memory have led to critical editions of works by C. P. E. Bach and Clara Schumann.
Reviews
"Given Liszt's importance and lasting influence, this beautifully produced, excellently written and documented book will likely prove to be a useful-even necessary-addition to the personal libraries of pianists, students of the piano literature and researchers in the field of 19th century music/Romanticism, and to institutional music libraries with collections in these areas. Highly recommended." --MusicMediaMonthly
"An excellent new book ... Kregor's book gives a persuasive account of the importance of Liszt's transcriptions in contemporary musical politics." --NYRB
