About the university
The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest is the only music academy in the world that was founded by
Franz Liszt. The piano virtuoso, composer, conductor, teacher, author and philanthropist established the
institution in 1875.
"Génie oblige!" was his credo: the duty of an artist is to use his gifts for the benefit of humanity and to nurture
genuine talent. Teaching at the Liszt Academy is rooted in this principle, reflecting the vision of its open and
versatile internationally recognized founder, who was years ahead of his time. A straight line can be traced
through four generations from Liszt to the Academy's piano professors of today.
