Peter Cornelius was a man of many talents: violinist, composer, poet, actor and a linguistic wizard. Corneliusís music, however, was not appreciated much during his lifetime. Only in 1905, long after Corneliusís death, a Weimar music festival dedicated to Corneliusís works, finally brought Cornelius the recognition he long deserved. Cornelius composed great number of exquisite songs using his own poems. Corneliusís church music is considered his best compositions. A unique true poet-composer, Cornelius was admired by Wagner and Liszt.
