Franz Liszt was born on October 22, 1811, in Raiding, Hungary [now Raiding, Austria]. His father, a multi-instrumentalist, taught him to play piano. By the time Liszt was 9 years old, he was performing in concert halls. As an adult, he toured extensively throughout Europe.
The main language in that region was German, while only a small minority could speak and understand Hungarian. For official purposes Latin was used. Children had only had lessons in Hungarian since 1835. Liszt himself became fluent in German, French and Italian.
Other composers recognized the expressive potential of the genre that Liszt had developed, and symphonic poems soon became a significant part of orchestral repertoire in their own right, rivaling the genre of the symphony both in popularity and in influence.
