This illuminating study concerns three people. Princess Carolyne Sayn-Wittgenstein was an influence in the life of Liszt. She interested herself in Berlioz only for the purpose of checkmating Wagner, whom she hated, and thus set Liszt against Wagner whenever possible. The complex relationships of this inscrutable and not altogether scrupulous trio are here considered for the first time in a way which adds much value to our estimate of the characters of Wagner and Liszt.
