Liszt Academy of Music Grand Hall reopened

The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music celebrated the refurbishment of its magnificent main hall by a grand opening gala on 22 October, the birthday anniversary of its founder, Ferenc Liszt.
From now on, this significant centre of classical music famous among others for its tremendous acoustics will be there for concert-goers and students of the Academy alike.
A huge multi-year reconstruction project funded mainly by the European Union and complemented by the Hungarian government sees the 106-year old Art Deco (Art Nouveau) building restored to its original beauty, while it lives up to meeting the standards of any high-profile 21st century concert hall in the world.
Beginning of December, the chamber hall named after the Hungarian-born Sir Georg Solti will also be available for the public, the first performances being Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute
