New mural celebrates legendary Hungarian pianist György Cziffra

Born a century ago this year, pianist György Cziffra is being celebrated in many ways around Budapest. Now Neopaint, the team behind the 6:3 and Nation’s Actors murals at key points around the city, has just unveiled another. Based on an actual photograph taken in 1962, the painting at Batthyány tér shows the later French national at the keyboard, wearing the wristband he required after his limbs were damaged at a Communist labour camp.
