Lina Ramann

Lina Ramann (July 24, 1833 – March 30, 1912) was a German writer and teacher known for her books on the Hungarian composer and pianist Franz Liszt. During 1874-94, she wrote his "official" though inaccurate three volume biography "Franz Liszt, the artist and man" (Franz Liszt als Künstler und Mensch) which was published between 1880-94.

At Ramann's request, Liszt revived in part one of his lost piano sonatas that he had composed in his youth (Anfang einer Jugendsonate, S.692b).
