Liszt transcribed nearly 150 songs for solo piano, including 44 of Schubert's Lieder.

"His response to poetic imagery, his conviction that purely musical images of poetic ideas are capable of projection to the listener, and his belief that he could illustrate such imagery without words, are keys to understanding Liszt's lifelong aesthetic. The musical image of the idea, the true symphonic poem, thus had its genesis in concept and form in Liszt's adoration of Schubert." Derek Watson: Liszt, p. 214.
