Liszt Academy of Music

Music and musicians are born in the Liszt Academy. This is a harbour to and from which ships carry musicians. The teaching of music – all areas of classical music, jazz, folk music, church music, composition, musicology and music teacher training – takes place here, in the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, while the nurturing stages are conducted in the Bartók Conservatory, the university's secondary school of teaching practice and preparatory institution.



  • Founded in 1875
