Franz Liszt Music Academy in Budapest

Such a great day to be strolling around this grand old dame of a city. Liszt Ter is full of shady trees and under their protective branches there are wall-to-wall eateries and cafe's. At the end of the short street is the Academy of Music. If you are very lucky and sit at a nearby cafe, you may hear glorious music from the open windows of the Academy where young artists are practicing.
Here is a photo with a little more of the building in it, however, the street is too narrow to have backed up far enough to capture the entire handsome structure.

Liszt is both a musical genius and tragic figure. This is a worthy building in his honour!

What a fantastic building! I would love to tour inside. As a musician, these academies of music capture my attention fully.
