About Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music

Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest is the only music academy in the world that was founded by Ferenc Liszt. The piano virtuoso, composer, conductor, teacher, author and philanthropist established the institution in 1875. \"Génie oblige!\" was his credo: the duty of an artist is to use his gifts for the benefit of humanity and to nurture genuine talent. Teaching at the Academy is rooted in this principle, reflecting the vision of its open and versatile internationally recognised founder, who was years ahead of his time and the straight line can be traced through four generations from Liszt to the Academy\'s piano professors of today. The Liszt Academy is proud to nurture the ongoing legacy of world-known Hungarian musicians like Liszt, Bartók, Kodály, Dohnányi, Hubay, Popper, Weiner, Ligeti and Kurtág, all of  whom have shaped our traditions, style and approach.

The main university building located in the historic city centre, the Academy is on the doorstep of Budapest’s dynamic concert life offering easy access to the city’s thriving life and cultural scenery. Beyond the scope of regular university activities, professional concert and event organization is also among our activities. Liszt Academy is also recognised as a top-level concert centre with its unique acoustic and interior.The Concert Palace (i. e. the main building) is regarded as a true sanctuary of music and is one of the most impressive examples of Central European Art Nouveau architecture. The 900-seat Grand Hall, with its intricate symbolic adornment, is known for its unparalleled acoustics and atmosphere. The 300-seat Sir Georg Solti Chamber Hall is newly equipped to fulfil its role as also a functioning opera theatre.

The renovated Concert Palace was awarded the European Heritage Label in 2016 and the Europa Nostra Prize in 2015.
