I listened to one of Franz Liszt's composition: Liebestraum and it was very obvious that it had a structure that was very simple to follow such as it started of very slow and then made a forte then went back down in a piano
as if it was a sort of wave structure he also included schords and notes.
Other works such as hungarian rapshody also followed the same structure as in a wave-like formula however this composition would switch between forte and piano and adagio and allegero it would also switch between a more fast and happy tune to a deeper, darker one from time to time
His adult life
his later life
since the death of his father in 1827 liszt had begun to slip into a slight depression, not knowing what to do with his life,
it took the 1830 french revelution to put his mind back on track. in 1833 liszt married countess Marie d'Agoult they later eloped to Switzerland where Liszt composed again,
he would even do an orchesteral concert every now and then.
for the next 10 or so years he composed around 11 operas such as: tasso, lamento e trionfo and les preludes
he now was a highly respected pianist and composer
his later life consisted of a lot of tragedy such as the death of two of his children: daniel and Blandine
his other daughter: Cosmia ran away and married Richard Wagner leaving Liszt alone
he then devoted himselft to religious music while on a prilgrammage in rome
he then later settled in Weimar where he gave a lot of piano mater classes
he also composed a lot of wprks such as the Legend of Saint elizabeth
in his final years he sought to teach piano to youngsters
he deied from pneumonia in 1886
