I simply dont like Liszts music. To me it is utterly vain and self-centered.
For you it is different which is fine with me. Taste is free, isnt it?
Nikolaus Harnancourt once said that he doesnt conduct Mahler because
"his music is only occupied with himself". In other words: vain and
self-centered. Now would you command Mr Harnancourt that he has to
justify this "vile slander"?
