Franz Liszt was not only a pianist and composer, but also left behind an extensive literary oeuvre in which he addressed social, cultural and aesthetic issues of his time.
The team of researchers from Saarbrücken, Heidelberg and Trier has set itself the task of publishing all of Liszt's writings as an annotated and freely accessible digital edition. They are supported by the French colleagues Dr. Cécile Reynaud (PSL, IReMus) and Dr. Nicolas Dufetel (CNRS, IReMus) as well as by Dr. Zsuzsanna Domokos, the director of the Liszt Museum with a research department at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest.
The resulting born digital edition will allow researchers to be far more flexible in presenting the genesis, annotation, and reception of the texts, and also to access more specifically the numerous items and topics treated by Franz Liszt but not discoverable through a full-text or conventional index search.
Committment to Teaching
Our researchers pass on their specialist knowledge in courses with innovative teaching / learning forms.
Digital Edition and Lexicography
Discover with us the possibilities and the potential of digital editions and lexicographies.
Digital editions offer a wide range of options for processing sources scientifically and making them accessible in open access.
Full Text Digitization
High-quality full-text digitization in form of a diplomatic copy is a decisive requirement in order to store basic works in databases and, thus, to make them searchable and connectable.
Implementing Research Projects Digitally
We model text data and multimedia objects, apply our tools and establish procedures, design websites and ensure sustainable research data management.
We rely on scientific cooperation and targeted network building in international research associations.
Open Access, Open Source, Open Data as well as other terms represent a research sector with transparent approaches and freely available results.
We consider our work processes to be an interface between technical expertise, knowledge-based services and humanities research in the range of Digital Humanities.
