The building of the RCH Institute for Musicology will be closed between November 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023 due to technical reasons. The staff of the Institute can be reached by email. Thank you for your understanding!


This closure only concerns the Institute itself, the Museum of Music History is still open from 10:00 to 16:00 every day, except for Mondays.

The Rajeczky Bequest


The bequest of Benjamin Rajeczky, as a notable figure from the town of Pásztó, is held by the Pásztó Museum, which also has a Memorial Room dedicated to him.


There is further information in Hungarian on the website of the Pásztó Museum >


Rajeczky’s research tools (e. g. photographs), working materials (e.g . for Monumenta Monodica Medii Aevi V. Antiphons) and notes have joined the collections of the Department of Early Music.

Parts of Benjamin Rajeczky’s library can be found in the Library of the Institute of Musicology and parts in the Early Music Department. It has now become possible virtually, if not physically, to reunite the known materials from Rajeczky’s library, and a catalogue is being prepared.
