Masons’ lodge, apprentice, journeyman, master, trowel, mallet – for stonemasons, these terms refer to a workplace, stages of training and tools of the trade. For Franz Liszt, Rudolf Kedl, Hellmut Andics, Ferdinand Hanusch, Theodor Kery or Fred Sinowatz, they were symbols of commitment to and membership in the worldwide association of Freemasons.
Liszt’s membership also influenced his musical activities. The exhibition at the Museum für Baukultur (museum of building culture, MUBA) puts the spotlight on this aspect of Franz Liszt. Accompanied by lectures and symposia, the exhibition will explore interesting connections between masons and Freemasons and trace historical developments of the Freemason lodges in Burgenland as well as biographies of Freemasons who lived in the region – all of which is bound to add up to an exciting encounter with the mysteries of this secret association.
