Hungarian Romantic era composer and pianist (1811–1886) whose prowess at the keyboard earned him the reputation as one of greatest virtuosos in the history of the instrument. Rare ALS in German, signed “F. Liszt,” one page, 4.25 x 7, April 24, 1881. In part (translated): “Hearty handshake for your beautiful poetic ‘Liszt Welcome’ in Berlin…” Matted and framed with an original carte-de-visite bust portrait to an overall size of 13.5 x 13. Punch hole to blank portion of left edge, some scattered mild toning and a few small creases, otherwise fine condition. The recipient is unknown, but it almost certainly was written to someone who had performed that day, with Liszt in attendance, at the Liszt Festival Concert in Berlin. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
