8 November-8 December 2011. On occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the German-Hungarian composer Frank Liszt (1811-1886), the Hungarian Cultural Counsellor Office pays homage to the musician with this exhibition. On display is a selection of photographs of the artist.

Liszt, who was at the same time composer, pianist, conductor and piano teacher, became famous in Europe during the 19th century for his virtuosic skill as a pianist and was considered by his contemporaries the most technically advanced pianist of his age. He invented the symphonic poem and developed the concept of thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form.

As a composer, Liszt was one of the most prominent representatives of the New German School. He was also a benefactor to other composers, such as Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Sa
