The Ferenc Erkel Official Website provided by National Széchényi Library was prepared for the respect of the 200th Anniversary of the birth of the Hungarian composer. Ferenc Erkel (1810–1893) was one of the greatest masters of the Hungarian musical romanticism, who not only as a composer, but as a public man took over a huge task.
With his Hungarian historical operas, and with setting to music of the Hymn, a poem by Ferenc Kölcsey – that was turned into the national anthem by the Hungarian folk– concerning as a pianist, and as a chorus-master of the National Theater, and then of the Philharmonic Assembly, he called into existence the Hungarian concert and opera life of an European rank. As the leader of the Song Association he was an active promoter of the domestic choir culture after 1867. As the conservatory's first headmaster- teacher he raised a lot of successors, musicians.
The Hungarian-language website, which is continuously expanding, offers on two surfaces with different graphic interfaces useful and interesting contents for researchers (researcher room) and for students and other interested ones (study room). In the researcher room the data sheet of all the works by Ferenc Erkel is available.
