Museoeurope 2016 - Europe in the time of Franz Liszt

 

Museoeurope 2016 will be held in order to honour the 170th anniversary of a performance in the Knight's Hall of the Maribor castle which was held by the musical virtuoso Franz Liszt. We are also preparing an extensive exhibition about the musical life in Styria in the 19th century and a symposium which will be devoted to the musical virtuoso Franz Liszt within the scope of the project.

The exhibition Franz Liszt, the Small European Tour will emphasise the atrist's tour in the year of 1846, when he performed in the cities of Graz, Maribor, Rogaška Slatina, and Zagreb. The exhibition will present the extensive collection of musical instruments of the Regional Museum Maribor for the first time. The exhibition will also be supplemented by objects which will be provided by guest institutions. We will present topics which are connected to the cultural history of Styria with the thematic priority concerning the development and creation of music in Styria.
