The specifics of Liszt's involvement with Bach and individual aspects of his idea of Bach can be best reconstructed from Liszt's own pronouncements, which are richly documented in writings, letters, and records of his classes. The cultivation of Bach between 1800 and 1830 is discussed as a preliminary to exploring Liszt's transcriptions and editions of Bach, his variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, and his Präludium und Fuge über den Namen BACH. The question of Liszt's Bach reception is also a question of his historical understanding and beyond that, the question of tradition and historicism in 19th-c. musical life. In an appendix, music of Bach owned by Liszt at his death as well as the contents of Alexander Wilhelm Gottschalg's Repertorium für Orgel, Harmonium oder Pedalflügel unter Revision und mit Beiträgen von Franz Liszt (1869-75) are catalogued.
