“Le concert, c’est moi” – “The concert, it is I”,
wrote Franz Liszt on 4 June 1839 in a letter to Princess Christina Belgiojoso in Paris

Liszt-Festival Raiding 2011

4 concert blocks – 5 cycles

Child prodigy, piano virtuoso, heartthrob and enchanter of Europe’s concert halls: Franz Liszt was one of the most dazzling musical personalities of the Romantic era and the composer of a gigantic oeuvre. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Liszt’s birth in Raiding, the commemorative year Lisztomania 2011 is being staged in the province of Burgenland, with a superlative programme of concerts at the Liszt Festival Raiding, six multi-facetted exhibitions and a wide variety of special projects. Johannes und Eduard Kutrowatz, the artistic directors of the Liszt Festival Raiding, have set a variety of focuses for 2011 at the Liszt concert centre: a cycle of piano works, a cycle of orchestral works, a cycle of lieder and vocal works, projects and world premieres, as well as commemorative concerts. These will be presented in four blocks in January, March, June and October. The opening concert on 27 January 2011 will also be the start of Lisztomania© 2011.

The Franz Liszt Concert Hall contains about 600 seats and can be found in the town of Raiding, the birth place of Franz Liszt. The architecture was designed by the Rotterdam studio of Kempe Thill, who was selected in an internationally advertised architecture contest of 150 participants from 11 countries. The acoustics consultant was the European dean of acoustics, Prof. Karlheinz Müller from Munich. All of the contributors had a common objective: the realization of the criteria of “Sight, Sound and Experience.”
