Franz Liszt Museum Bayreuth © Lorenzo Moscia

Until today traces of Liszt can be found in Bayreuth. The Liszt museum, his tomb at the city cemetery and the original Liszt grand piano from 1873 in the Rococo hall of the Steingraeber & Sons piano manufacturer.

When Franz Liszt visited the Bayreuth opera festival in July1886 he was already seriously ill. He stayed at the house of the forest ranger right next to the Wahnfried villa, where his daughter, Cosima Wagner lived with her children. In the night from July 31st to August 1st Franz Liszt died in the presence of his daughter Cosima and was buried on August 3rd at the Bayreuth city cemetery. The house of his death, Wahnfriedstreet 9, is since 1993 the Franz Liszt museum in Bayreuth. A Liszt bust by Arno Breker is on the green hill, in the park of the Festival Opera House, not far from the Bust of Richard Wagner by Breker.

Until today traces of Liszt are found in Bayreuth, the Liszt museum, his tomb at the city cemetery and the original Liszt grand piano from 1873 in the Rococo hall of the piano manufacturer Steingraeber & Sons. Liszt played there on the grand piano with his friends and colleges and gave public concerts. Until today concerts are given regularly on the Liszt grand piano.
