Monaco: Liszt

In 1986 Monaco issued a single stamp (Scott 1549) honoring the birth of Franz Liszt 175 years earlier. Interestingly the background includes some organ pipes. (The stamp background also looks remarkably like the Bach-Handel stamp background from a year earlier.) "Interestingly" because Liszt is not "known" as an organist nor a composer for the instrument. . Liszt has a single (very famous) fantasia on a Meyerbeer chorale tune for the organ, but that's really about the only work of any reknown.
