Today, the concept of the pianist as composer is an idea that is relatively obscure, yet before the 1920s, pianists were, in fact, expected to be as fully versed in composition as they were in performance. After the 1920s, the notion of an instrumentalist who composed in similar proportion to the amount they performed has all but disappeared, and as a result, pianist-composers later became recognized as a separate group. Piano performance is an art in itself, and few concert pianists today partake in the practice of composition. Liszt was possibly the greatest, and last, pure example of a pianist-composer, and this project report will seek to examine the other pianist-composers who have followed in the Lisztian tradition of transcription, particularly Marc-André Hamelin and Stephen Hough.
