In the spring of 1886, the year of his death, Liszt visited England, thus causing great excitement in musical circles here, especially as he attended several performances of his works. On 6 April the Prince and Princess of Wales were present at a concert at St James's Hall, when Liszt's oratorio St Elizabeth was played. Liszt dined with them on 11 April and played the piano for them afterwards. On 7 April he had played for Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle. This photograph of the composer, aged seventy-five, was taken in London during his visit.
