Song Without End (1960)
The Life of composer Franz Liszt
Song Without End is indeed a film that does not display the characters in a believable situation. However, the music score is among the greatest in motion pictures.
I will always remember that performance of ' Les Prelues'as being the most powerful that I have ever heard even from the best symphony orchestras.The performances of the late Jorge Bolet are magnificent.Especially during the clever arrangement of the Concerto/Hungarian Fantasia. It is clear that Dirk Bogarde is not playing the piano,yet one cannot help but take pleasure in the greatness of the music whomever is playing.
The producer of the film also takes great pains in letting the audience know that Franz Liszt often performed the music of other composers like Wagner and Berlioz.He also was a great fan of Chopin. This is addressed in the film with care and intelligence.
I remember this film as a child and can still remember the great music.Thank God! for the score from Song Without End.
