Piano Arias


Liszt not only conducted opera, but would also often rework beloved music from operatic literature in his piano pieces. Charity and public-spiritedness were key aspects of Liszt’s life and it is in this spirit that this piano concert is a joint production with the Őrzők Foundation. The official charity of the Tűzoltó Street Children’s Clinic will donate income from the event to improving treatment conditions for children suffering with tumours or leukaemia.
