About the Event

On this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of music by Bartók and Liszt at Budapest's treasured and world‐renowned Liszt Academy.

Liszt Academy Concert Center
The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music was founded in 1875 by Liszt himself, and was initially called the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music. Today, the building is home to a prestigious conservatory and fine concert hall, and houses the Liszt Collection, comprising the composer’s manuscripts and books. The institution's dual objective — to provide cultural education and cultural entertainment — makes it unique.

The 'New Academy' is located in a grand Art‐Nouveau building dominated by the statue of Liszt, one of Budapest’s architectural gems. The season offers not only classical concerts, but also jazz, folk, and contemporary music performances.
