Franz Liszt held a commanding position in the world of music, his career likened to the passing of some great flaming meteor across the heavens. The music of other composers was Liszt's to mould, transcribe, exalt, promote and popularise on the piano. For the music of Schubert, a composer he declared to be the most poetic of all he had a particular affection and sympathy and this is reflected in some sixty transcriptions of Schubert songs. Many of these were written in the late 1830s and formed a popular part of his concert programmes during his years as a travelling virtuoso. Here he was able to express his own enthusiasm for Schubert and to bring this repertoire to the attention of a wider audience.The complete transcription of Schwanengesang was written in 1838 and 1839 and published in Vienna in 1840 by Tobias Haslinger.
