Carl Tausig’s Biography

Carl Tausig was born in Warsaw in a Jewish family, and received his first piano lessons from his father.

He later met Franz Liszt in Weimar and became his favorite student, traveling with him on his concert tours and studying counterpoint, composition and orchestration, as well as receiving piano lessons.

At age 16 he met Richard Wagner, of whom he became a devoted follower.

Wagner was happy to sponsor him (as is evident in Wagner’s autobiography My Life) despite his Jewish background. Tausig made piano arrangements for many Wagner operas.

He also introduced Wagner to his friend Peter Cornelius, another Adept of Wagner.

Tausig settled in Germany and opened a piano school in Berlin in 1865 which, however, closed soon after. He toured throughout Europe, becoming known for his exemplary technique. He died in Leipzig of typhoid at age 29.

His production as a composer is very small and little explored today. In addition to his completely original works, he made arrangements of works by various composers, and wrote several pedagogical works (works for teaching and practice).

Among his most famous transcriptions is one of the Toccata inminor, BWV 565 by Johann Sebastian Bach.
