Liszt Ferenc Academy Reopens

The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music has reopened after being closed for a couple of years for remodeling. It looks stunning and quite bright since it received an overdue cleaning beside the renovations. This may be slightly old news, but I just happened to walk by a week ago, so it was news for me, though I think Ron had mentioned it earlier.

Something new has been added too. Outside to the left is this new statue. It is quite unusual, I must say. On the side of the statue is an inscription. I had to look up Sir Georg Solti. I had never heard the name before. He was born in Budapest, but being Jewish, fled in 1938.
The style reminds me of a sculpture on Nagymező utca. I wonder if the artist is the same.
