This event has ended.

When the 12-year-old Franz Liszt (1811–1886) arrived in Paris in 1823 with his parents, he had already astounded audiences with his extraordinary musical gifts in his native Hungary, as well as in Germany and, most notably, Vienna, where Beethoven anointed him with a kiss on the forehead. Not long after his arrival in Paris, he would also amaze the sophisticated cultural community of the City of Light. Through nearly fifty manuscripts, first editions, letters, and related materials drawn almost entirely from the collections of The Morgan Library & Museum, the new exhibition Liszt in Paris: Enduring Encounters celebrates the art and the diverse and fertile artistic world of the virtuoso pianist-composer.
