From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Count Leo Festetics (Pécs 8 October 1800 — 15 November 1884), a patron of music and an amateur composer, from a prominent Hungarian family (Festetics), was a friend and correspondent of Franz Liszt, who dedicated to him his Hungarian Rhapsody No. 3, in B-flat minor (1853). Liszt based his Spanisches Ständchen (R 161, SW 487) on a melody provided by Count Festetics. In 1856, Festetics published his designs for a theatre (British Library collection).
