Franz Liszt (1811-1886)
A Hungarian composer and virtuoso pianist, also - a teacher. Apart from his great talent, good works (which you should all listen to) and the novatory way of playing piano (changing the popular, old pieces a bit while playing… basically covering songs while playing them, kinda ‘jazzing’) he was well known for many (like many many many) romances. Women would visit him to learn how to play a piano, then leave pregnant and ready to divorce.
Because of how crazy his fans could become, a new medical term was created - ‘Lisztomania’.
But look at his face… How not to get lisztomaniac, while being in contact with such a flirty and attractive man?

"I adore the man [Fred Astaire]. I always have adored him. It was the most fortunate thing that ever happened to me, being teamed with Fred: he was everything a little starry-eyed girl from a small town ever dreamed of.”
"All the girls I ever danced with thought they couldn’t do it, but of course they could. So they always cried. All except Ginger. No no, Ginger never cried."
