Famous Last Will and Testament Composer Franz Liszt

About the last will and testament of famous Hungarian composer Franz Liszt.


FRANZ LISZT, Hungarian composer, died 1886

Last Will: "This is my testament" headed 12 large pages written in 1860, most consisting of an emotional outpouring of sworn devotion to his companion the Princess Sayn-Wittgenstein. "Such as I owe to Carolyne what little good there is in me, I also owe to her the unsubstantial property I possess: in brief, the little I am, and the very little I own. . . .amounting to about 220,000 francs." No amount of this, however, was left specifically to the princess. He charged her to divide it "in equal parts between my two daughters, Blandine and Cosima" and to continue "after my death our affectionate relations with Wagner. . and now I once more fall upon my knees with Carolyne to pray, as we have often done together."
