In May 2008, on a trip to Budapest, Marti and I visited the home/ studio of the 19th-century Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, music teacher, arranger, organist, philanthropist and author Franz Liszt. The plaque shows his visiting hours; the image below is Liszt's composing desk. It was a thrill for me to walk in his footsteps, to see Liszt's piano, his prayer kneeler by the bed and the "road" keyboard he used to write music while traveling by train.

This morning I found a free bit torrent download of Franz Liszt's Piano Concerto No.1, S.124 by Alexander Djordjevic and the University of Illinois Symphony. It's here. Simply click on the movements to download. Enjoy!
