The University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar (in German: Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar) is an institution of music in Weimar, Germany.

The Hochschule[edit]

Franz Liszt, who spent a great deal of his life in Weimar, encouraged the founding of a school in 1835 for the education of musicians in orchestral instruments. It was his student Carl Müllerhartung who realized Liszt's dream, founding the university on June 24, 1872. The school offers programs in all orchestral instruments, piano, conducting and composition.


The university is located in several different buildings in the centre of Weimar.


The university offers courses in all musical disciplines, including composition, conducting, jazz, musical theatre and pedagogy at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
