The article focuses on the late musical arrangements of Hungarian composer Franz Liszt. It says that most of Liszt's biographers have regarded his late works as an embarrassment and a complete failure. It notes that Liszt's deficiency to compose may be attributed to several disappointments that happened in his life including the death of his daughter. It cites that Liszt, whose works include "Apparitions," has redeemed himself with compositions that reflect exoticism and religious symbolism.
