Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Unbelieveably gorgeous!

"We visited the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music 2 times during our stay in Budapest. Once to tour the music conservatory/concert halls during the day (daily tours are offered in English with a bonus performance at the conclusion of your tour) and a second visit to attend an evening piano recital. 

The tour was fantastic (classical music fan here) and at the conclusion, we were treated to a performance by a wonderful pianist who was a graduate of the academy.

The piano recital was held at night as was absolutely wonderful.

The building itself is an absolutely stunning work of art - if you like Art Nouveau, you will be completely blown away by the beauty of the building. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area (centrally located right off Andrassy - Ferenc Liszt Square)."
