At number thirty five Vorosmarty Street you will find the Franz Liszt Museum House. In fact, it was here on the first floor that the great musician lived from 1811 until he died in 1886.
The building is home to four rooms in which you will find a number of pianos, including one made from crystal, pianofortes, writing tables, several portraits and personal objects. You will also be able to visit a small concert hall which was used by the conservatory’s students.
This museum is a real joy to visit, a place which gives you a glimpse into the life of one of the greatest virtuosos in the history of music, a master praised in his time by Beethoven himself. He was a prodigious child and was taught by the Italian composer Antonio Salieri. He also created the symphonic poem, a typical example of Romanticism, as well as the modern technique for playing the piano. All of which made him one of the most influential pianists of the 19th century.
