My own Homage to Liszt was a work for percussion and piano I wrote for Eugene Ughetti and myself to perform in a concert at ANAM in 2011, the year of Liszt's bicentennial, along with performances of Humphrey Searle's 1951 sonata (also a homage to Liszt and premiered at London's Wigmore Hall by my teacher Gordon Watson in that same year) and Liszt's favourite Beethoven sonata, the so-called Hammerklavier opus 106. Homage to Liszt is in six sections, the musical material of which is in some way related to Liszt with the exceptions of the Prologue and Epilogue, which are jazz-derived bookends, as if looking back at Liszt from the 21st century. The work is scored deliberately for a combination Liszt would not have considered during his day - the anti-rubato nature of so much 21st century music would be a curious development for his sensibilities.
