Concert hall

From the Salon - as it was in Liszt's lifetime - we directly enter the concert hall. As the salon no longer can serve as an artist's room, the stage has been transferred to the opposite end of the hall, where a separated artist's room is joining to it.

Unfortunately the organ, which was originally in the room, could not be replaced, and in its place is a large allegorical drawing by Sandor Liezen-Mayer (an artist of Liszt's time) which decorates the background of the podium. In the concert hall the only original pieces of furniture are the wooden armchairs built along the walls. All the other pieces of furniture were designed in modern times by Gabor Mezey. The huge candelabra and wall lamps in the style of the time are the work of Imre Tatar.

Today in the concert hall near Liszt's flat one can often hear music. There are lessons here, concerts by the Academy of Music and other organisers, as well as morning concerts organized by the museum itself on Saturdays at 11.00 a.m. On special occasions even those instruments are played which used to be touched by Liszt's own hand.
