His piano works move toward impressionism, and his sacred works begin to shed any superfluous elements. All of these changes intensify further in his last period, La vie trifurquee. LA VIE TRIFURQUEE: WEIMAR-ROME-PEST, 1869-1886 This closing chapter of Liszt's activities lasts seventeen years and constitutes the longest distinct compositional period of his life. When he left Rome in January 1869 at the persuasion of Grand Duke Carl Alexander to continue his work in Weimar, he was fifty-seven.

46 Recently, however, that situation has improved greatly with two collections compiled and translated by the English scholar Adrian Williams. 48 Whether in public or in private, Liszt was always news, and a compilation such as this portrays him at his fullest. The other is Liszt's Selected Letters,49 an outstanding volume that contains nearly 950 letters (mostly as substantive excerpts) to over 100 correspondents—with the spotlight mostly on Marie d'Agoult and Carolyne Sayn-Wittgenstein—all backed by the editor's meticulous scholarship.

In April 1866 he tried to speak with his daughter in Amsterdam and attempted to convince her again in Munich as late as October 1867. From the Bavarian capital, he secretly paid a short visit to Wagner who was living in Triebschen, Switzerland, after having been exiled by King Louis II because of the scandal around Wagner and the Biilow couple in Munich. Neither Cosima nor Wagner listened to him. Cosima finally left her husband in the summer of 1868 and joined Wagner with her four daughters, two of which were Wagner's children.
